Students are Passing Their Courses but Failing the NCLEX: Where’s the Gap?

Students are Passing Their Courses but Failing the NCLEX: Where’s the Gap?




“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”    ~ John Dewey

Students need nursing content to pass the NCLEX. True.

     And there’s a lot of it.

     Wouldn’t you agree?

You work so blasted hard to teach your students what they need to succeed.

     It’s easy to feel like you’re a hamster running on a wheel when trying to teach the mountain of content that your students need to pass the NCLEX.

     It can be down right overwhelming, right?

And frustrating. Because we often think, “My students get it. This knowledge is going to stick.”

      But it doesn’t.

There are many reasons for this. How we teach. How we connect. How we test. And on the students’ end. How they engage with the material. How they study. How they practice.

And that’s not all…


Similar to faculty, students are in overwhelm, attempting to cram and memorize that mountain of content.

Yep, they may pass their course exams using this method. 

But, cramming and memorizing NOW won’t help students pass the NCLEX LATER. Because as you and I know, the NCLEX requires clinical judgement – and that can’t be memorized. 

This leads to a sticky situation.

     Students pass their courses but fail the NCLEX.


That’s not good for students, faculty, or your program. 

On the other hand, wouldn’t it be nice if students passed their courses AND you had no worries about whether they were going to pass the NCLEX?

They need to learn how to connect the dots.

And that’s great.

You know why? Because we are in an awesome position to teach them how. 

Imagine implementing teaching and testing strategies in your classroom and in clinical that prepare your students for the NCLEX and practice, to prepare them to connect the dots.

To prepare them to see the big picture.

To apply this new knowledge in your classroom and on the clinical unit.

And to transfer that knowledge to the next class and further. 

Imagine dropping the worry (while  raising the pass rates.)

Nope, I’m not stuck in a dream world.

Have you ever had any of these thoughts?

If I don’t teach students all the content they won’t pass the NCLEX.

 I worry that so and so student (you fill in the name) won’t pass the NCLEX.

I want to graduate students who can critically think.
