NCLEX-RN/PN Assistance


I have assisted associate and baccalaureate degree programs to prepare nursing graduates for the NCLEX-RN examination over many years. When I became the department chair of my last academic position in 1998, the first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate (percentage) in the associate degree program was in the middle 40s, on its way down to its low point in the middle 20s. The program was put on warning by the state board of nursing.  Based on the recommendations of a consultant that had worked with the program prior to my coming and changes that I assisted the faculty to implement, the NCLEX-RN pass rate rose to 100%. Since the new baccalaureate program was launched in 2001, only three graduates (beginning in 2005 with the first graduating class) have failed to pass the NCLEX-RN on the first attempt.  The most usual pass rate for the program is 100%.


My conviction is that NCLEX-RN success is based on a holistic approach to program enhancement that includes attention to admission, progression, retention, and graduation policies and procedures, as well as faculty development and individualized and group interventions with students. I have consulted with educational programs to implement changes based on this conviction.
