Online education among health professionalsCreated by:
I'd like to ask the community about their thoughts on online education. I have recently encountered nursing programs in the United States that offer masteral and even doctorate nursing degrees solely through online education systems. Basically, all learning materials are provided for, and can be accessed through online means. Assessments and assignments are also passed online, which are reviewed by a mentor or a coach. I personally feel that this type of education allows the individual to learn at his own pace. However, I also think that it has its disadvantages in terms of limited mentorship and the like. Do you think that online education is enough to be conferred a degree?
