Fear can be a powerful motivator for parents. Of course, for most parents, fear motivates them to keep their children close. Tony Leonard, however, was terrified that his daughter would never leave home. His daughter was a struggling nursing student, and Leonard was afraid that she would fail her NCLEX exam.

Leonard had statistics on his side too. There are over 500,000 nursing students who sit for the exam every year, and about 50% fail on their first attempt. There are 2.3 million who have graduated from nursing school and never passed the exam. And as Leonard commented in his recent pitch to a full auditorium, in Indianapolis, “I don’t know how many baby boomers we have here, but we’re going to need more nurses.”
