ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 3 Annotated Bibliography Baker, M. Predicting NCLEX success through prerequisite and admission requirements (Doctoral Dissertation, University of Phoenix, 2008). Retrieved from the Dissertations & Theses @ University of Phoenix database. This study used a mixed method approach with qualitative and quantitative research methodologies to evaluate prerequisite and admission requirements and NCLEX- RN first time pass rates in associate of applied science degrees in public Arizona community college districts.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
