Enhancing Student Learning: RN CAT Advisement Program.
Donaldson, Susan K.
This document describes a community college advisement program that was implemented to improve the student pass rate for the national nursing licensure examination. The nursing faculty at Manatee Community College (Florida) recently instituted an advisement system during the final semester of the two-year nursing program. First, students were required to take one of the practice examinations that are available in the Media Laboratory. Once a hard copy is obtained from each student by the deadline established, the students are randomly assigned to one of the full-time faculty members as their advisor. Depending upon the test scores, the advisor may require remedial coursework in areas of weakness. The nursing faculty prepared a database of audiovisual resources available to each student for further exploration of all areas of the licensure examination test plan. During the second half of the final semester, the Mosby Assess Test is taken by each student. Once the test results are received, each student is again required to meet with their advisor to review the newest results. All students are encouraged to take a review class and to return to the college to continue test prep, even in the summer. The computers and videos are always available to them. Appended are guidelines and resources. (JA)
