The Nursing Education Collaborative invites you to the April 12, 2019 education event.

With Marianne R. Jeffreys, EdD, RN (


This educational program presents an organizing framework for understanding nursing student retention, identifying at-risk students, developing both diagnostic-prescriptive strategies to facilitate success and research-based innovations in teaching and educational research. Jeffreys’s Nursing Universal Retention and Success (NURS) model is interwoven throughout, along with essential information and easy-to-apply examples for developing, implementing, and evaluating retention strategies. Special focus is on diverse learners and nontraditional students.

At the end of this educational program the program participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the multidimensional process of student retention
  2. Identify factors that restrict or support student retention and success
  3. Discuss strategies that can enhance student retention and success for diverse learners
  4. Describe strategies for evaluating teaching and retention strategy effectiveness
  5. Propose a plan for enhancing student retention and success
