Remediation and Testing Focused Progression

Student success in nursing programs is typically measured by success after graduation on the licensure exam. Without adequate support as students progress through their nursing programs, many students will not get the chance to get to this endpoint. Student progression should be guided in the development of test taking and study skills and much in the same way they are guided by their progression into more difficult courses in the curriculum. Social support of nursing students is necessary to ensure student success. Guiding students in remediation of content is a form of social support to help students be successful. Through the use of HESI testing and study materials, faculty can assist students in preparing a study portfolio for successful remediation.
