Learners in the pre-licensure programs complete all didactic (classroom) instruction online through the learning management system (LMS) Canvas. Nightingale College has an array of online teaching tools that include interactive learning modules, discussion boards, web conferencing, and e-books. These tools allow for increased flexibility as to when and where learners access the online classroom.
Nightingale College’s DDC model involves the essential components of online didactic instruction combined with experiential learning components. Together, this forms the College’s hybrid-distance pre-licensure nursing degree programs (associate and bachelor’ degree programs) delivery modality. The College also offers a fully online post-licensure RN-to-BSN Program for licensed RNs ready to advance their nursing knowledge and skills past the ADN level. Nightingale College only provides its pre-licensure and post-licensure programs in states that have received approval.
