Abstract

This quantitative study utilizes ex post facto data to examine the graduation rates and time to degree of 240 students enrolled in a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program at a community college in Florida. The findings indicate that students who completed all general education requirements before entering the program were more likely to graduate in three years than students who completed some general education requirements after entering the program.
