Our challenge to meet the demands of the stakeholders continues to be impacted by the number of faculty, the preparation of faculty, and institutions ability to drive and support change. Our other prevailing challenge is to have test-ready students who can successfully pass the national licensing exam. This study determined to prepare faculty with a course designed with alternative learning activities and a student-centered focus. The goal is to evaluate student success in a proceeding course after students become active participants in their own learning. The question is to determine if student-centered designed courses promote student success in future courses by impacting learning behaviors.
