OVERCOMING Education Failures and Retakes: A SPIRITUAL PROCESS
The retention of students is a major challenge for nursing education programs. Although students who fail can often retake courses, negative internalities may occur. After a failure, students regularly present with emotional distress. A mental health practitioner, who is a nursing faculty member, is ideal to assist these students and offer support. The integration of spirituality as a coping mechanism for these students can serve as a protective factor.
