Experiences of Nurses Who Have Failed a Nursing Course and Successfully Completed the Nursing Program Introduction/Purpose More nursing graduates are required to meet the future demand for registered nurses. Nursing programs are reporting attrition rates between 30-70%. Existing research focuses on admission criteria, retention, and remediation of students. No studies exist that explore the nurses’ experience of failing and successfully completing a nursing program and passing the NCLEX-RN. The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences of nurses who have failed one nursing course during their Bachelor of Science (BSN) nursing education program, yet completed their nursing program and passed the NCLEX-RN on the first attempt.
