Online Learning

The School of Nursing offers a wide variety of learning formats. Some courses are taught fully in the classroom setting while others are fully online. Several courses offer a combination of classroom content and online format; these classes are considered hybrid. The online learning center has been developed to assist our students in participating in online coursework (whether hybrid or fully online). 

The School of Nursing FastTrack courses are fully online and are primarily prerequisite courses for our Accelerated Programs for Non-Nurses (APNN) and are also possible electives for the RN to BS program. Each of the programs that we offer will designate on their program pages which courses are fully online, hybrid online, or classroom only.
