Recruiting Students Is One Thing; Keeping Them Is Another

Matteson-Kane, Maureen MSN, RN; Clarren, Donna Sue ND, RNC


Retaining students who are in their prenursing classes is the focus of an ongoing program in the department of nursing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Concerned that less than one-half of the students in prenursing classes actually entered the nursing program, faculty developed a program to increase student retention. The authors discuss the structure and content of monthly programs held for prenursing students.
