Nurse Educ. Jul-Aug 2006;31(4):163-5. doi: 10.1097/00006223-200607000-00009.

Abstract

Many faculty struggle to find the best way to prepare their nursing students for the NCLEX exam. Nursing faculty at Ferris State University identified, along with other issues, a lack of structured remediation throughout students' clinical courses. The author explains how NCLEX review was incorporated into an existing university-wide remediation program, resulting in an increase in our students' pass rates from 65% to 92%.
