Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to identify potential indicators of learner readiness, also referred to as student preparation, for online nursing courses. A sample of 38 articles including learner readiness assessments, discussions, and research provided the source for this exploratory content analysis. This study used a conceptual content analysis process that included multiple coders and experts to increase the reliability and validity of the findings. The indicators were also checked to see if they were referenced in relation to online nursing students or all online students, and to see if they were noted as mandatory for online programs. The results found 42 potential indicators of learner readiness. Of the 42 indicators 6 were noted as mandatory, and none were referenced in relation to online nursing students. These potential indicators serve as a foundation for additional research to validate each individual indicator as an actual predictor of learner readiness.
