Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify possible factors that might relate to the changes in the performance on the NCLEX-RN. Data were examined on sixty-two graduates in one baccalaureate nursing program at a predominately black, moderate size state university. Questions answered by the study were: (1) Were there initial differences in the characteristics, at the time of their admission to the nursing major, between the students enrolled during the 1981-1984 and those enrolled during the 1984-1987 periods?; (2) Were there differences in the nursing program offered between the 1981- 1984 period and the 1984-1987 period?; (3) Were there differences in the students' perceptions of the nursing program of those enrolled during the 1981-1984 period and those enrolled during the 1984-1987 period?
