Paula Bryant, Teresa Teasley

Colleges and universities are being challenged to increase the number of students who complete college on time in the state of Georgia. The purpose of this presentation is to describe how one school of nursing created an advising and counseling center focused on retention and graduation as a new approach to Complete College Georgia. This presentation will describe an innovative approach for student retention based on individual counseling, intrusive advising, and engaged learning strategies to improve progression and retention rates. This session will address best practices for promoting critical thinking skills by using engaged student learning strategies, which support institutional plans for Complete College Georgia. The audience will be involved by participating in one of the active learning strategies used across our curriculum, adaptive quizzing promoting critical thinking skills.
