Use of focus groups to elicit student perception of NCLEX-RN preparation

Use of focus groups to elicit student perception of NCLEX-RN preparation

Journal of Nursing Education 49(9): 534-537

Focus groups are an appropriate data collection method when one wants to listen to and gather information from a homogenous group of participants. Faculty members from a baccalaureate program used this technique to learn more about their students' perceptions of NCLEX-RN preparation practices. Themes were identified that could lead to more controlled study and ways to effectively remediate those at risk for failure.
