Improving NCLEX Scores With Structured Learning Assistance

Morton, Arlene M. MSN, RN, CFNP


Many faculty struggle to find the best way to prepare their nursing students for the NCLEX exam. Nursing faculty at Ferris State University identified, along with other issues, a lack of structured remediation throughout students' clinical courses. The author explains how NCLEX review was incorporated into an existing university-wide remediation program, resulting in an increase in our students' pass rates from 65% to 92%.
