In response  to Shervawn Eaton's request for information to help nursing
students pass reading tests and enter nursing programs,  I concur with Lucy
MacDonald's response.

At our school, our pre-nursing students need to pass the NET test to enter
the program.  It is good to have reading requirements since students who do
not read well tend to fail.   We have the following course offerings to help
prepare them for the rigors of such programs.

Two developmental readings classes -  The first one is designed to increase
vocabulary, comprehension, and develop fluency.  The second course focuses
on learning strategies, study reading (comprehension/vocab),  and critical
reading using full length college chapters, and challenging articles of
various lengths.   Students who scores below college level are to take one
or both of these courses first.

If students pass the developmental courses or if they are already reading at
the college level,  then they can enroll in a college level reading/learning
theory course designed for pre-nursing students. The Nursing Department and
the Reading department co-designed the course.  Students work on building
comprehension, speed, and learning strategies.  Nursing articles, full
length chapters, lectures, and tests are utilized so that students are
dealing "with reality."

My advice is to design long-term, structured, systematic assistance rather
than one or two workshops.

> We  have a similar requirement. Our past retention studies show that
nursing
> students with lower reading skills cannot pass the nursing courses!
>
> We provide a two prong support system:
>
> 1. A pre-nursing class, Nursing Success Strategies, required for ALL
students
> applying to the nursing program. It is a team taught class by a nurse, a
math
> science tutor and a reading/learning specialist.
>
> 2. College level reading class - which provides lab work with an emphasis
on
> the reading nursing journals and textbooks. Primarily, students need a
> sophistication of language and a good strategies to handle the amount of
> reading required.
>
> I have the students map out how many pages of nursing textbook material
they
> can read in 15 minutes. Then we calculate how long it would take them to
read
> all of the assigned work. In a 10 week term, long about week 7 and 8, some
> students have 48 hours of reading alone! They need more than a band aid.
They

time.
> The need specific training and practice, which takes time. It's not just a
> question of getting a higher test score on a screening test.
>
> The other difficulty is reading the level of language of the nursing

the

have

> the boards that they have to take.  It benefits both students and program
to
> get them ready with a solid, firm foundation with the skills that they
need,
> even if it means more classes to reach their goal.

> Note: We have 250 students vying for 70 slots.
