Impact of a Review Course on NCLEX-RN® Examination Pass Rates

Impact of a Review Course on NCLEX-RN® Examination Pass Rates

The purpose of this project was to determine if a NCLEX-RN® Examination review course improved student first attempt pass rates in an AASN program. The HESI® Adaptive Quizzing (AQ) review course was added in the final semester of the program to alleviate a recent drop in pass rates. Adaptive quizzing questions mimic NCLEX-RN® Examination style questions and fulfill the triad of licensure preparatory activities contained in Betsy McDowell’s KATTS framework for NCLEX-RN® Examination success.
