Abstract

IntroductionThe role of the registered nurse is crucial to meeting the healthcare needs of the people of the United States (U.S.). The need for nurses continues to increase due to population growth, improved access to care, large numbers of registered nurse retirements, and the aging U.S. population. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2015) reported that more than 2.7 million nurses were employed and it is estimated that there will be an increase to over 3.4 million nurses by 2020. “The models used incorporate workforce dynamics to forecast future nursing shortage of 300,000 to 1 million RN jobs in 2020” (Juraschek, Zhang, Ranganathan, & Lin, 2012, p. 241).The challenge is for schools of nursing to increase enrollment and graduate students ready to practice safe and competent nursing as quickly and efficiently as possible. Improving on-time progression can be accomplished via strategies that utilize teaching resources appropriately, support students in a positive learning environment, enhance study habits, and facilitate early engagement with peers and faculty. On-time progression eliminates the need to repeat courses, reduces costs to the student and institution, and increases diversity of graduating nursing students and capacity to admit more students.
