ATI Pulse Overview
Historically, indications of eventual NCLEX success or failure have been restricted to end of program assessments like our own ATI Comprehensive Predictor. Although a highly predictive instrument that provides individualized recommendations for student remediation, the Comprehensive Predictor is not designed to dynamically follow a student through his or her academic career and inform of potential NCLEX remediation needs. To address this gap and provide earlier indications of remediation needs, ATI conducted a national study to determine whether performance on ATI’s products (other than the Comprehensive Predictor) might be used to provide students and faculty with earlier indicators of “at risk” status. The result of ATI’s national-level analysis was the creation of the predictive model: ATI Pulse, which is capable of identifying students who are at risk of NCLEX failure both early and throughout their nursing program of studies.
