Addressing the ADN Graduation Challenge
Discover 5 Strategies for Improving Attrition, Retention and Graduation Rates
Read our findings on five practical strategies that RN Nursing programs are applying to improve student outcomes.
The nursing shortage in the U.S. means that associates degree nursing programs (ADNs) are under tremendous pressure to prepare and graduate successful nursing students. Yet nearly every ADN program confronts challenges with student attrition and retention, and also with first-time success on the NCLEX®-RN exam.
These challenges are complex, with multiple causes and far-reaching impact on students, families, schools, medical facilities, and even society at-large. There are no simple solutions, but several techniques show promise for helping schools to improve student outcomes. Learn our findings from our survey of the literature and from conversations with nursing educators.
