Boise State University recently celebrated the high retention and graduation rates of students in its online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BS) program.
According to Boise State, the program consistently boasts retention rates around 90 percent, and last year the program
had a graduation rate of 72 percent.
“These numbers are especially striking when
compared nationally to other online RN-BS degree programs, which boast a
graduate rate of around 40 percent,” RN-BS Program Associate Director
Marilyn O’Mallon said.
The program credits its success to numerous
factors, including constant feedback from professors and students to ensure
that they are receiving the support and attention they need. It works to make the process as smooth as possible, handling some administrative
tasks that students would otherwise take on themselves.
Boise State also works
to keep track of students who drop out of the program, keeping their
information on hand for a year and checking in.
“Our students are the best advocates for
recruiting for our online programs of study,” O’Mallon said. “Whatever we can
do to support our faculty and our students, we do. The RN-BS team recognizes
the RN-BS program as a business model that promotes customer satisfaction to
our consumers, our students. They’re paying for our service and we want to
provide them with the best service we possibly can.”
