Abstract
The purpose of this quantitative, retrospective study was to examine the predictive accuracy of the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) RN Comprehensive Predictor scores for passing or failing the NCLEX-(RN) exam in a cohort of nursing students (N= 195).
Guided by The Taxonomy of Bloom and Knowles’ Andragogical Model of Learning as the theoretical mainstay, I examined which independent variables significantly predict nursing graduates’ success or failure in the NCLEX-(RN) on their first attempt. Inferential and descriptive statistics were explored to differentiate differences, if any existed, between the dependent variable, NCLEX-(RN) and several independent variables. Pearson r correlation was conducted to determine whether a positive significant relationship exist among variables. Multiple regressions were utilized in order to test the independent variables (Norton et al., 2006).
The most significant findings were the predictive power of the ATI Comprehensive Predictor Scores in projecting success of a nursing graduate when attempting the NCLEX-(RN) exam for the first time. The ATI standardized exit scores of the students were found to significantly predict success on the NCLEX-(RN) (b = 0.289,
t = 4.198, p=0.000). Based on the findings, a policy recommendation was developed to assist student successful with the NCLEX-(RN) exam. Recommendations for future research include conducting this research using a larger number of nursing programs and enrolling students identified as at risk into the University Structured Learning Assistance (SLA) program. Positive social change will occur with an increase in the amount of nursing students passing the NCLEX-(RN) exam on their first attempt (Bonis et al, 2007).
