The goal of the Student Success Program is to retain bright and capable nursing students by supporting them to become expert learners through enhancing their study, test taking, time and stress management, written and oral communication, and critical thinking skills. Students for whom English is a second language also receive instruction in accent reduction. Retention rates increased following implementation of the program. Recommendations for those considering implementing a retention program are addressed.
