Nursing faculty are concerned about the ability of recent graduates to successfully pass NCLEX-RN on their first-attempt. To facilitate student first-time success on the examination, nurse educators need to understand what student characteristics are predictive of success. The purpose of this study was to explore student characteristics across 3 different programs types (university-based BSN, master's entry, and satellite BSN) and in each of the 3 program types to identify predicators of first-time NCLEX-RN success.
