Mount St. Mary's College has offered a nontraditional Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program since 1992. The program has an afternoon and evening/weekend format. There has been one previous research study published in 2005 that described the student population that Mount St. Mary's College serves. This present study will examine the student population since 2005 because of changes in admission requirements, the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) - Registered Nurse (RN) passing standard, and the persistent nursing shortage.
The purpose of this research study is to predict success for nontraditional adult learners in an Afternoon and Evening/Weekend Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) program. Success is defined as completion of the nursing program and passing the national board examination on the first attempt. This research study will also identify and describe the nontraditional adult learners served in an Afternoon and Evening/Weekend Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) program. Additionally, this research will determine if selected admission criteria and other factors such as student characteristics are correlated with both nursing program completion (as measured by exit grade point average) and subsequent passage of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) - Registered Nurse (RN) on the first attempt.
