Schools of nursing around the United States take multiple measures to prepare nursing students for safe practice in today’s complex healthcare system. One area in which schools of nursing continue to struggle is the first-attempt pass rates of NCLEX-RN. Despite various ways of preparing nursing student graduates, the NCLEX-RN first-attempt pass rates for United States’ nursng schools remain sub-optimal. Because many of the efforts to increase first-attempt NCLEX-RN pass rates have been inadequate and new ways of preparing nursing students remain underexplored, the purpose of this study was to explore a computerized adaptive testing program, PassPoint, and identify any predictors for NCLEX-RN success on first attempt. The purpose was also to compare and analyze the computerized adaptive testing program, PassPoint, to a traditional preparatory testing method, Kaplan, in relation to NCLEX-RN first-attempt success in an associate degree nursing program in the midwestern United States. After employing a retrospective correlation design, a number of statistically significant relationships were noted.
