This evidenced based educational project examined African American students entering the Licensed Practical Nursing Program at a Community College in northern New Jersey. This evidenced based pilot project was designed to assess the effect of an intensive medical mathematics course and medical mathematics tutoring. The project's purpose is to increase the retention rate of African Americans in the first three clinical nursing courses, the Fundamentals of Nursing, thus increasing the Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) Program completion rate.
