This study examined the association of COVID-19 emergency remote teaching (ERT) learning months with first-attempt National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) success in an associate nursing degree program in Texas. We found that up to 12 ERT months was associated with a 61% decreased odds of passing the NCLEX-RN exam on the first attempt compared to no ERT months. Also, Hispanic graduates were less likely to pass the exam on the first attempt.
