Online Accelerated Nursing Coursework
An online accelerated nursing education is just as demanding as an on-campus format. You are required to complete the same course curriculum within a set time frame, but you are not tied to a specific classroom schedule or location for many of your courses.
Online courses provide a level of convenience by letting you choose when and where you participate in class.
Through Northeastern University’s online-based accelerated nursing program, you complete much of your nursing coursework using an intuitive e-Learning platform that allows you to:
- Listen to and read lecture material.
- Participate in simulated learning activities.
- Complete and/or upload course assignments.
- Interact with other students via a discussion forum.
- Join scheduled chat sessions with instructors.
- Stay organized via the calendar management function.
An online education is just as effective as learning in a traditional classroom. While there is no physical presence with online learning, there is still a high level of virtual interaction and collaboration through the learning management system.
Online Courses Fit Different Learning Styles
Every student learns differently, making the online learning environment ideal. Because an online accelerated nursing education takes a less hierarchical approach to instruction, it works well for students who do not approach new information in a linear fashion.
Through aural and visual-based lectures, simulated learning modules and discussion forums, you are able to participate in several different types of learning activities, all designed to help you better retain course information. For example, you can watch simulations of how long-term hypertension impacts the body, a dynamic experience you simply cannot get from a standard textbook.
