This qualitative research study was undertaken to investigate the experience of being a registered nurse (RN) student enrolled in a specific nontraditional nursing program, ie, Regents College Nursing Program (RCNP), from the perspective of the RCNP baccalaureate graduate.
Fifteen RN bachelor's of science in nursing (BSN) graduates of RCNP participated in this descriptive phenomenological investigation in which participant interviews were tape-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed phenomenologically using Colaizzi's methodology.
An exploration of the language of human experience and human express (on yielded 101 themes within 20 theme clusters, yet the meaning of the experience was characterized by 8 major clusters that included recounting reasons for choosing RCNP, describing learning approaches for testing, describing the challenges or testing conditions, experiencing stress and describing its effects, describing feelings of uneasiness, describing responses to failure, providing support, and finding ways of mastering Regents.
