Abstract

This study examined the grade experience for online nurse practitioner students (N = 3760) who took more than 1 clinical course per academic term as compared with those who did not. Students who had more than 1 clinical course per term had a greater percentage of clinical course failures than other students (2.1% vs 0.8%, P = .001). Nurse practitioner programs should develop clear policies and guidelines for students taking more than 1 clinical course at a time.
