The purpose of this study was to identify students at risk of attrition and implement interventions to decrease the risk.BACKGROUND
The ability to identify and intervene with students deemed at risk of attrition can be a valuable tool for increasing the RN workforce. “Statewide At-Risk Tracking and Interventions for Nurses” (SATIN) involved students from 27 initial RN licensure nursing programs in Texas.METHOD
At-risk status of each nursing student was identified, and each nursing program provided interventions based on students' needs.RESULTS
The Weaver Reading Program was the most effective of the six intervention strategies used with SATIN participants. Lack of utilization of the interventions was the number one limitation of the study.CONCLUSION
Use of the Weaver Reading Program as well as personal engagement with students, one-on-one mentoring, and continued time investment are recommended to all programs.
