Distance Learning: An Innovative Approach to Nursing Education
This article presents four views encompassing one nursing department's experience using distance learning technology. The challenge of presenting a nursing class through distance technology is discussed from the perspective of the telecommunication faculty providing technological support, the nursing faculty teaching the on-campus course, the off-campus nursing faculty coordinating the course at the outreach site, and the head of the Department of Nursing. Review of course grades demonstrated that off-campus students achieved higher grades than on-campus students. All students evaluated the teacher as being effective; however, off-campus students were not as strong in their opinion.
