This article reports a study to evaluate an option for alternate access to graduate nursing education for 85 registered nurses with nonnursing baccalaureate degrees.
Using the National League for Nursing Comprehensive Achievement Test (NLN-CAT) to assess knowledge together with successful completion of a special course designed by the faculty, these applicants were admitted to an accredited graduate program in the Lienhard School of Nursing (LSN), Pace University, Pleasantville, NY.
The study describes 6 full years of experience using this option.
The theoretical rationale; a content analysis for the congruency of content among the NLN-CAT; the terminal objectives of the LSN baccalaureate program; the course outlines and objectives of required upper division baccalaureate nursing courses; and the content of the faculty-designed course, Matrices of Nursing Practice (NUR 589) are presented.
