Attrition Study of Ohio's Schools of Practical Nursing.
Webb, Carolyn H.
The 40 schools of practical nursing in Ohio have been challenged, along with all vocational education programs, by the State Board of Education to meet the need for a modern vocational and career education system. One of the goals that must be achieved to meet this challenge is to ensure successful completion of at least 80 percent of the students entering these programs. In order to determine the attrition rate of Ohio's schools of practical nursing, a questionnaire was developed and mailed to all of Ohio's schools. Twenty-three of the 40 schools responded to the survey (58 percent). The responses showed that Ohio schools of practical nursing had an attrition rate of just under 20 percent and thus were meeting the goals of the State Board of Education. Some schools, however, had much higher than average rates. The study concluded that the staff of the schools that were not meeting the 80 percent retention rate should focus on ways to decrease attrition. (The survey is included in the report.) (KC)
