Method: A remediation plan was initiated from intense 1:1 meetings between faculty and graduating nursing students over a six-week period while completing exit assessment testing. This model was used by students and was associated with successful testing outcomes. Adjusting this remediation plan to use with course assessment testing was expected to yield similar outcomes. This remediation model was refined for use with course assessment testing during the fall semesters of 2013 and 2014 at a university setting for baccalaureate nursing students.
Results: The remediation model met with varied success dependent on student usage. When student usage increased, this remediation plan was associated with improved assessment testing outcomes.
Recommendations: Further examination of factors associated with student usage is needed. As this remediation plan takes 2-4 days to accomplish, it must be given to the student with timeline awareness.
