Abstract

There is a shortage of qualified, professional nurses that is causing a healthcare crisis throughout the United States. One reason for this shortage is that educational requirements for nurses have been changing in the last two years and many hospitals are looking to higher nurses with graduate degrees in nursing. This paper describes a model for developing a high quality masters and doctorate program in nursing education utilizing a two-week cycle and a phased approach for course development. The MSN and DNP programs build on a strong tradition of nursing education and incorporate blended learning by utilizing a combination of traditional face-to-face instruction with online instruction. Both of these teaching methods utilize a variety of techniques including weekly student interaction to keep the students engaged. The model utilizes a syllabus template, a variety of roles for team members, and requires training of course developers and online facilitators.
