dc.description.abstract The Problem. The purpose of this study was to determine what relationship exists between Mosby Assesstest scores and success on the NCLEX-RN in traditional and accelerated diploma nursing graduates and if there was a significant difference between the traditional and accelerated diploma nursing graduates. Procedure. The convenience sample consisted of the graduate records from the accelerated and traditional diploma nursing programs. The sample consisted of fifty-nine traditional graduates and forty-four accelerated graduates, Mosby Assesstest scores, NCLEX-RN results, and demographic variables were obtained from the records. Findings. There was a weak positive relationship (point biserial correlation 0.2771) between Mosby Assesstest scores and success on NCLEX-RN of traditional diploma nursing graduates, No statistical significance was found between Mosby Assesstest scores and success on NCLEX-RN of accelerated diploma nursing graduates. There was no statistically significant basis to conclude that there was a difference between the traditional and accelerated diploma nursing graduates. Conclusions. This study suggests a need for continued study to identify predictors of NCLEX-RN success among diploma nursing graduates. Recommendations. Recommendations for future research include replication of the study using a different sample, Also, an investigation of the methods utilized in nursing education which identify students at risk for NCLEX-RN failure will provide additional useful information for nurse educators. en
