A Case Study of Factors Leading to Student Success in an Accelerated Licensed Practical Nurse to Associate Degree Nursing Program
Taylor, Sherry T.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
This case study attempted to discover and comprehend the relationship of students and contributing factors of success, of one Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program, to formulate an understanding of which contributing factors are most beneficial to enable students to persist to graduation and/or successfully pass the national nursing licensure examination. Multiple methods of data collection were used; a survey mailed to each of the 86 nursing graduates, three follow up focus group interviews with six graduates per group, a focus group interview with four nursing faculty, observation in classroom and clinical settings, and document analysis. Participants interested in participating in the study gave voluntary consent by returning the research consent form. The data gathered through the results of the survey, interviews, observations, and document analysis provided a basis for determining the noncognitive contributing factors possessed by the students and how these factors are perceived, by the nursing graduate, as contributing to student success in the nursing program and on the national nursing licensure examination.
