Graduate Nursing for Registered Nurses
Video-conferencing: Partner Sites

In 2009 the School of Nursing embarked on an initiative to provide convenient access to graduate education at partner sites in rural areas of Ohio where nurses may not have convenient access to such education. This initiative was made possible by a federally funded grant for video conferencing technology to enable classes taught live on XU's campus to be video conferenced to classrooms at the partner sites.

Track options for distance students include administration, clinical nurse leader, education, family nurse practitioner, and general studies. Other technologies such as WebEX may also be utilized on a limited basis.
