Abstract or Summary

A research study of nursing students’ progress was undertaken by Burtenshaw in 2010. Following this study and the recommendations contained, the criteria for entry into the Bachelor of Nursing programme was amended to the requirement of a minimum of 60% pass in all aspects of the Certificate in Introduction to Study before the student was offered a place in the Bachelor of Nursing degree programme. This current study has tracked the progress of cohorts of nursing students and has followed progress of the two semester’s intakes of 2012 through to completion of the degree in the three-year cycle. Semester 1 of 2013 has also been tracked until the completion of semester 4 while semester 2 2013 intake has been tracked until completion of semester 3. 2014 intakes have been tracked through semester1 and 2 of their programmes. The tracking has been used to show the success of the students as a first enrolment in the degree papers and subsequent successful completions of these enrolments at first attempt. The aim of continuation of this research study is to confirm that the amendment of the entry criteria has been successful and has helped student achievement in the Bachelor of Nursing degree programme. This report will be used to inform the Bachelor of Nursing programme committee of the success rates of the students who have entered the programme from different streams and inform CHASP and Centre for Foundation Studies of the students’ progress and achievements. Tracked alongside this data have been the parallel enrolments in the Bachelor of Nursing degree of those students who have entered the programme with the entry criteria as per the academic regulations of those years. Comparison of this data demonstrates a different level of achievement and a higher level of completions at first enrolment.
