The National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) is a standardized exam that all pre-licensure graduates of nursing programs in the United States must pass to obtain professional registered nurse licensure. Predicting NCLEX-RN success is an ongoing concern of students, educators, and schools of nursing. Computerized exams such as the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) exams are commonly used in many nursing programs as a tool to help predict success. At a private Midwestern university, a retrospective study was conducted to determine if a relationship existed between performance on the ATI exams and NCLEX-RN success. Two graduating classes (n = 37) of pre-licensure students were studied to determine the accuracy of predicting NCLEX-RN success using the ATI exams. Data were collected on student performance on ten ATI exam scores: Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) test, Critical Thinking Composite, Fundamentals, Pharmacology, Pediatrics, Maternal Newborn, Mental Health, Medical Surgical, Community, and the Registered Nurse (RN) Predictor Exam. A questionnaire was sent to faculty administering the ATI to examine the emphasis placed on the exams. While the ATI exam scores strongly correlate with NCLEX-RN success, the results do not appear to be predictive of NCLEX-RN success within the sample size of this study.The National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) is a standardized exam that all pre-licensure graduates of nursing programs in the United States must pass to obtain professional registered nurse licensure.
