Georgetown launches online master's in nursing
"Our new online initiative will allow us to extend our mission and magnify our impact on health and healthcare across the nation, particularly in rural and underserved areas," Julie DeLoia, interim dean of Georgetown University Medical Center's School of Nursing & Health Studies, said in a news release.
The didactic portion of the program will be provided online, while students will be able to complete the clinical portion of their training at a facility in or near their home community. Lectures will be taught by Georgetown faculty "using streaming video, animation and various other Web-based technologies" to facilitate "interactive online class sessions—including small group discussions—with faculty and classmates," according to the release.
The initiative will launch this spring with a graduate degree program for family nurse practitioners. Online programs for other specialties will follow, according to the release.
