The present study set out to examine the contribution of basic sciences to academic success in nursing education.
A number of regression analysis models were used to analyze the relationships among predictor and criterion variables.
Data analyses showed that basic sciences and grade point average of nursing courses in year 3 and 4 contributed significantly to student success in the program (p<0.001).
The cumulative grade point average was the only significant predictor of the licensure examination success.
These results suggested that the content in science courses may have unique relevance to nursing and, therefore, may have a factor in their predictive value.
