Summary
Although multiple studies exist which evaluate the relationship between a student's academic persistence, progression, and retention, few studies have evaluated the relationship between pre-requisite science courses and persistence in an Associate Degree Nursing program. With a national nursing shortage, greater emphasis on the retention of students who are enrolled in nursing programs must be maintained. Emphasis at both the state and national level to respond to the Institute of Medicine 2010 Report on the Future of Nursing are necessary to further bridge the gap in academia between Associate Degree Nursing programs and Bachelor of Science in nursing programs. The purpose of this retrospective secondary data analysis was to evaluate the relationship between academic performance on pre-requisite science courses and Associate Degree Nursing student outcomes. A retrospective, secondary data analysis design was used to guide data collection and analysis. Tinto's Model of Student Retention served as the foundation of this study. The study sample population consisted of Associate Degree Nursing students enrolled in one pre-licensure nursing program in the Midwest. Demographic data included all Associate Degree Nursing students from the multi-site community college in the Midwest from the inception of the stand-alone program in the fall 2015 to present who have graduated. Program data for this participant group of Associate Degree Nursing cohorts were entered into Statistical Package for Social Sciences software and coded appropriately. All statistical tests for analysis of the secondary data were conducted using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences. The findings from this study will inform further studies capable of examining practices associated with selecting required pre-requisite courses, as well as developing a greater understanding for the implication(s) of failed prerequisite courses and the likelihood of further unsuccessful attempts. Once the relationship is established, an intervention can be explored, and further data can be collected and analyzed
