Nursing student attrition was the focus of this study and the purpose was to explore the possible relationship between students' motivation profiles scores (MPS) and grade point scores (GPS) in combination as better predictors of nursing student attrition than grade points scores alone. Previous research has suggested that grades are best predictors of attrition; however, motivational orientations have also been examined to provide predictive value for student attrition at a variety of educational levels and institutions. Furthermore, limited information was available about the motivational orientations of first semester nursing students and how these motivational orientations are related to student outcomes. A questionnaire called the qMotivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaireq (MSLQ) was used to assess student's MPS related to the first semester course. A quantitative research methodology provided the foundation for the study and a predictive correlational design examined the relationships between GPS, MPS, and attrition as well as the predictive values of GPS and MPS related to attrition. The results of this study supported previous research that grade point scores are the strongest predictors of nursing student attrition. The results also showed that certain motivational orientation subscales contributed additional predictive value in specific subgroups of the nursing student participants. The analysis of GPS and MPS in combination showed a modest increase in predictive value of attrition compared to GPS alone.Impact of Attrition on Nurse Educators Nursing student attrition is increasingly becoming an area of interest and concern ... entrance test scores (Ellis, 2006; Gallagher, Bomba, aamp; Crane, 2001) and admission essays (Ehrenfeld aamp; Tabak, 2000;anbsp;...
