Abstract

First-time pass rates have been down consistently across the nation (see Table 1). A review of this decline demonstrates that graduates are struggling consistently. We understand that the National Council of State Boards (NCSBN) is attempting to ensure the safety of the public. Through their research, NCSBN determines content and passing standards for the NCLEX-RN® exam. In April of 2016, new registered nurses (RNs) will face a new test plan.
