This study was designed to identify variables that might be used as predictors for success on the post-1988 National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and to identify those students at risk of failing the examination.
The convenience sample consisted of 257 graduates of a baccalaureate nursing program from 1988 to 1990.
The investigators examined 15 variables to determine their predictive value for NCLEX success.
Grades in the first senior level nursing course and graduation grade point index were the two best predictors.
Results of the discriminant analyses identified seven significant predictor variables leading to successful classification of 86 per cent of students at the end of the junior year, 88 per cent during the senior year, and 91 per cent by the time of graduation.
