Abstract

Academic failure has been described as endemic in nursing education. Every semester, students fail nursing courses and are required to successfully repeat the course before they can progress in the nursing program. This qualitative grounded theory research explored the process of overcoming failure. Strategies to assist nurse educators support at-risk students and recommendations for reevaluating nursing curriculum are discussed.
