Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:40 am


Four students at Southeastern Illinois College have been recognized for being the first graduating class of the online hybrid practical nursing program at the school. The program, which will now begin each fall and run 11 months, is a combination of theory classes, all online, and labs in the classroom. This type of program caters to those who are proficient at online learning and need the flexibility that online classes can provide, due to work or family obligations. “There are challenges in online education that hold the students to a higher standard of rigor, and the instructors must be creative and innovative in their development and delivery of curriculum,” said Amy Murphy, interim director of nursing and allied health. “This has been an exciting pilot program, and we are looking forward to many years of successful online nursing education.”
