The challenges encountered by nursing graduates to pass the licensing exam entail considerable emotional and financial implications due to delayed employment and loss of employers’ investment in graduates’ preparation during orientation programs. The study aimed to identify the effectiveness of the remediation program by comparing students’ performance in two comprehensive Exit Exams delivered before and after the program. A descriptive time-series evaluation design was followed to determine the effectiveness of the remediation program on students’ performance. The study showed that students’ overall performance improved after the delivery of the remediation program interventions. In conclusion, the use of interactive teaching strategies and formative assessments improves student nurses' overall academic performance and learning.
