The Domino Effect on Academics and Economics” on Thursday, October

series, the talk will take place in the Kaplan Family Library and
Learning Center on the Mount campus, 330 Powell Avenue,
The lecture is free and open to the public.
In the United States especially, say Schulmerich and Hurley,
studies report the inability of students to meet the rigors of
college, especially in regard to mathematics, reading, writing, and
Having conducted a study with a purpose to discribe the
incidence and monetary costs associated with remediation, course
repetitions, graduation delays, and passage rates on the American
licensing exam, NCLEX-RN, Shulmerich and Hurley will showcase their
methodology, findings, and conclusions.
