A Review of Intervention Studies to Promote NCLEX-RN Success of BaccalaureateStudents

DiBartolo, Mary C. PhD, RN, C; Seldomridge, Lisa A. PhD, RN


Numerous studies have identified factors to predict NCLEX-RN but few have evaluated interventions to promote success. An integrative literature review of intervention studies used in baccalaureate programs to improve NCLEX-RN success demonstrated that although pass rates increased, researchers were limited in their ability to attribute success specifically to the interventions. Further investigation using more rigorous designs with larger, diverse student groups to evaluate both type and timing of various interventions is recommended.
