Correlation Between Critical Thinking Skills and National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses Success in Accelerated Bachelor Nursing Students
Critical thinking (CT) skills are expected of all nurses, yet a limited number of studies have explored the impact of CT on National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) pass rates. We examined 110 students in a first-degree accelerated bachelor of science in nursing program to explore whether CT is a first-attempt predictor of NCLEX-RN success. We found that there was a statistically significant relationship between CT scores and passing the NCLEX-RN.
