The paper deals with the convergence properties of the nonconforming quadrilateral wilson element which violates the patch test. The convergence of the element is proved under a certain condition on mesh subdivisions without any modifications of the variational formulation. This result extends the range of applicability of Wilson's element. The necessity of the proposed condition is also discussed.
