If students do not complete any portion of a module, the entire module must be repeated. Students may enter the program in any of the modules and continue through these modules until all have been completed.

Upon approval from GNPEC, online instruction will include discussions, tutorials, quizzes, exams, stimulations, and videos that student will engage. The programs also subscribe to the synchronous and asynchronous learning design. Students will meet with their instructor in weekly Zoom meeting to discuss learning content and learning outcomes such as instruction on EHR data entry. In addition, student will obtain in-person instruction for their hard skills such as vital signs, patient triage and documentation, and administering medication. Lastly, in our efforts to integrate current technology that cultivates student-centered learning experiences, students will interact with simulations to capture the real-world scenarios for students to enter the workforce.
