Computer Technology for Nurse Educators (T619)

Computer Technology for Nurse Educators is a fully online course designed to give you the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills for using a variety of technologies to support the teaching/learning process.

You will learn theoretical frameworks that guide the selection, use, and integration of instructional technologies into education programs and discuss principles of distance learning. In this course, offered also for academic credit, you will learn with other professional nurses, graduate nursing students, and the course faculty. To meet the course requirements, you will submit written work through the learning management system, respond online to others’ written work, and participate in both synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous online discussions about the course content.

This course has been designed to reflect specific competencies outlined in The Scope of Practice for Academic Nurse Educators (National League for Nursing, 2005). 

This course requires that you be a licensed RN and hold a BSN degree.
