The results indicated that both nontraditional students and students with English as an additional language are less likely to experience early program success and on-time completion while nontraditional students were more likely to experience National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®) success. Results from the study were used to develop interventions specifically designed to promote success in diverse student populations at the research site.
