The purpose of this research study is to provide insight into the needs of nursing students and the barriers and challenges encountered by nursing students who may be at-risk of attrition in an associate degree nursing program at the community college level. This study was implemented to identify causes that lead students to become at-risk of failure and explore the factors that may lead to attrition. Taking these factors into consideration, the researcher examined the characteristics of the nursing students who may be at-risk and the qualities that contribute to attrition. The research study identifies the resources necessary to assist nursing students who may be at-risk and support them in continuing to graduation and determines several critical factors to increase the persistence, retention, and graduation of nursing students.
