E-Learn: World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education


There is a constant challenge to develop and implement courses in a manner that leads to direct translation of principles and skills to the workplace. As health care is an everchanging field, nursing faculty are faced with a constant state of flux that leads to research, review and re-creation of course materials. Most students in graduate nursing programs are nontraditional students. These students need to apply their newly learned skills in order to remain motivated and see the immediate value from course work. Problem-based learning is a way to meet the needs of nursing students. Creating unique opportunities through the combination of distance learning, virtual face to face interaction, and local practica experiences not only leads to student success, but profound student satisfaction. It is the value-added hybrid intervention that leads to the development of work-ready students and nurse leaders.
