The success of an associate degree nursing program is often dichotomized into either passing or failing the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nursing (NCLEX-RN). Not only are individual students’ nursing future dependent on successfully navigating this examination, but the licensing and accreditation of nursing education programs are determined by maintaining consistent first-time pass rates of their graduates. This study will investigate academic and demographic factors to determine significant predictors of first-time pass on the NCLEX-RN for the associate degree in nursing program at Shawnee State University.
