In summary, 296 of the 1375 candidates to schools for registered nurses in Israel had applied to more than one school in 1975/6. Women who were single and in the 18-19 yr age groups tended to apply more often. Duplication in use of resources occurred primarily in relation to psychological tests. The multiple-applicants made up one quarter (N = 175) of the 634 beginning students. A significant relationship was found between success in the program and the number of times a student had been rejected by other schools. Attrition rate of single applicants (21.9%) was lower than that of multiple-applicants (30.0%). Recommendations include: a central registry and admission center; early identification and intervention of potential drop-outs.
