Graduation and Withdrawal from RN Programs. A Report of the Nurse Career-Pattern Study.
Based on a larger longitudinal study, this document examines three nursing groups--those entering schools preparing registered nurses in 1962, 1965, and 1967. It describes and compares those who graduated and those who withdrew before graduation and examines the reasons why the students withdraw from both the students' and the program directors' points of view. The contents include 7 chapters, 47 tables, and four appendixes. Chapter headings are (1) The Nurse Career-Pattern Study, (2) Graduation and Withdrawal, (3) Variables Related to Graduation/Withdrawal, (4) School Variables and Graduated/Withdrew, (5) Reasons for Withdrawal, (6) Activities of Withdrawals after Leaving Nursing School, and (7) Discussion and Recommendations.
