Georgetown University’s School of Nursing and Health Studies is bringing a part of its graduate programs online this spring.
The program will combine lectures from Georgetown professors using streaming video and other technology. Online class meetings and discussions are also scheduled to be part of the program.
“Our new online initiative will allow us to extend our mission and magnify our impact on health and health care across the nation, particularly in rural and underserved areas,” Julie DeLoia, interim dean of the NHS, said in a statement.
Students in this class will have some experience on the Hilltop before they graduate, as two weekends of practice with patient simulation technology on campus is required for the program.
