De-Distancing Education: Videoconferencing as a Medium in RN to BS Education
Learning Objective #1: Participants will be able to describe ways to increase access of nurses to RN to BS education using interactive videoconferencing.
Learning Objective #2: Participants will be able to list the aspects of instruction that change when using interactive videoconferencing.
The purpose of this syposium is to describe access to baccalaureate education provided to RNs through the use of videoconferencing technology. A private liberal arts college nursing program partners with seven community colleges located throughout the state of Maryland to advance the academic preparation of practicing nurses. The presentation will share our story of the changes in our approach to learning that have come into being with the use of interactive videoconferencing. What is gained or lost as technology opens new ways of accessing RN to BS education. Through a unique blend of pedagogical approaches and technology, faculty provide a curriculum that meets the needs of adult learners and produces successful graduates.
