Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Student Nurse Attrition: Barriers to Successful Completion of the Registered Nurse Associate Degree Program
by O'Neill, Elizabeth, Ed.D., College of Saint Elizabeth, 2021, 196; 28323635
Abstract (Summary)

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.
