Before implementing additional student success resources, UT Health’s passing rate for the nursing licensure exam had dropped slightly in recent years. But today, UT Health’s pass rate is 98% - the highest in the UT system and second highest of all BSN programs in the state. As a way to jumpstart more student-faculty relatoinships and create a collaborative environment for student success, UT Health San Antonio implemented Starfish in Fall 2016.
“Our faculty was desperate to have more student engagement tools at their disposal,” said Dr. David A. Byrd, Associate Dean for Admissions and Student Services. “They wanted a systemic way to make meaningful connections with at-risk students and spur them to action.”
