Although an ethnically diverse workforce is believed to enhance patient care quality, Hispanics are under-represented in nursing. Recruiting and retaining Hispanic students in nursing programs is essential for greater workforce participation. This grounded theory study explored practices used by Hispanic nursing students to promote their academic success during the first semester of a baccalaureate of science in nursing (BSN) program. Fifteen Hispanic nursing students participated in focus groups and individual interviews. As students moved through their first semester, a trajectory of adaption was identified consisting of arrival, managing, and responding to evaluations. Finances, family dynamics, dealing with potential failure, and time management were significant factors.
