As a means of promoting evidence-based admission selection decisions in a baccalaureate school of nursing, the faculty at a college of nursing in the southeastern part of the United States investigated the value of including preadmission exam scores as one criterion in the admission protocol. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of Elsevier's HESI Admission Assessment (A(2)) exam as a predictor of student success. Four A(2) exams were administered to baccalaureate nursing students: reading comprehension, vocabulary & general knowledge, math, and anatomy & physiology...

This study investigated the value of administering Elsevier's HESI Admission Assessment (A(2)) to associate degree nursing (ADN) school applicants. The relationship of A(2) scores-composite scores and 5 component scores: basic math skills, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary & general knowledge, and anatomy & physiology-with final course grades in 3 first-semester nursing courses was investigated. Findings indicated that composite A(2) scores and all 5 component A(2) scores that were administered to the ADN applicants were significantly related (P < ...

UNLABELLED: In a 2006 Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board report (Increasing RN Graduates in Texas: A Report to the 79th Legislature), nursing programs in Texas were challenged to increase the number of graduates to deal with the nursing shortage. This article describes the East Texas region's efforts to identify and intervene in the nursing student attrition rates of participating partners nursing programs. The primary purpose of this study was to identify and intervene with students at risk for attrition...

Acute ankle and foot trauma is a regular emergency presentation and prompt strategic assessment skills are required to enable nurses to categorise and prioritise these injuries appropriately. This article provides background information on the anatomy and physiology of the lower limb to help nurses to identify various grades of ankle sprain as well as injuries that are limb threatening

The current shortage of nurses and declining national pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) has heightened educators' interest in identifying students at risk for failure. A retrospective descriptive study was conducted at a rural, public baccalaureate nursing program to determine variables that best predict NCLEX-RN success and failure. Data collected from 1998 through 2002 (N = 186) included entry as native or transfer student, preadmission grade point average (GPA), GPA after completing one semester of nursing courses, cumulative GPA at graduation, grades earned in prerequisite and core nursing courses, test averages in beginning and advanced medical/surgical nursing courses, and performance on the National League for Nursing Comprehensive Achievement Test for Baccalaureate Students (NLNCATBS)...

With the increasing prevalence of renal failure and increasing demands on the health care system for renal replacement therapies, we felt a program to promote early education on kidney disease with strategies to prevent kidney failure was much-needed. The Kool Kidney project is an educational tool developed to help educate grade five students on the basic anatomy and physiology of the normal healthy kidney. The project is based upon some theory discussion as well as some "hands-on" fun. In a typical presentation, a nephrology nurse or nurses will go into the classroom and discuss the kidney...

The results from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which identified preferred psychological traits for 131 nursing students, were compared to their usage levels of course objectives in an undergraduate course in anatomy and physiology. The three usage levels (user, occasional user, and nonuser) were also compared to exam scores in the course, overall grade point averages (GPA) in first-year nursing, and the various psychological traits measured by the MBTI. A multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) indicated that users of objectives achieved significantly higher exam scores and maintained a higher GPA than occasional and nonusers...

The relationship between the Myers-briggs Type Indicator and Gregorc Style Delineator, and achievement was examined by administering these instruments to 259 first-year nursing students enrolled in an introductory human anatomy and physiology course. A principal component factor analysis using a varimax rotation of the scores from the two psychometric instruments, achievement examinations and an over-all grade point average indicated that each learning style from the Gregorc Style Delineator corresponds to certain traits on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator...

In end stage renal disease (ESRD) clients, pruritus can be so severe and intractable, despite scratching, that sleep deprivation and contemplation of suicide can result. The exact etiology of pruritus in ESRD is unknown, but several possible etiologies have been proposed. Assessment tools are available to nurses and clients to grade the severity, frequency, distribution, and sleep deprivation experienced with the itching. Various treatments have been used to manage pruritus in ESRD with limited success. This article reviews the anatomy and physiology of the skin, describes the pathophysiology of pruritus, discusses proposed etiologies, reviews an assessment for an ESRD client with pruritus, and discusses the collaborative management of pruritus in ESRD...

Primary prevention and health promotion have become salient topics in Canadian society and in nursing during the past two decades. The noncommunicable chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, have been linked to specific lifestyle behaviors or habits, which often develop early in life. The success of public health efforts to improve the health status of all Canadians depends substantially on the success of educational programs directed toward children. Effective teaching strategies that seek to promote health and wellness in children need to be developed and empirically evaluated...

The purpose of this two-part study was to identify early indicators of students' success (N = 98) in a baccalaureate nursing program. Part I determined how well six variables predicted competence on a criterion-referenced anatomy and physiology (A/P) examination. A multiple regression model was used to analyze the relationships among the predictor and the criterion variables. Data analyses show that only two predictors, grade point average and type of college in which the A/P course was taken, were significantly related (p = 0...

A retrospective prediction study was conducted to identify predictors of success on the NCLEX-RN and within the nursing curriculum. Records of 192 graduates of an upper-division, single-purpose baccalaureate nursing program were examined using multiple regression techniques. NCLEX-RN success could be predicted by GPA at end of Level 1 in nursing program, ACT composite and social science subscale scores, Anatomy and Physiology I grade, and percent correct on Mosby Assesstest. These findings have implication for entering a nursing student into an early intervention program designed to enhance success within the nursing program and on the NCLEX-RN...
