How Nursing@Georgetown Works
Nursing@Georgetown – the online Master of Science in Nursing program at Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies – utilizes a unique learning management system created to give online degree students the same high quality learning experience students studying on campus receive. The innovative learning platform uses online study groups, video, and other built-in technologies to connect students with faculty and classmates.
The 2GU Web site is part of the Web-based learning management system (“LMS”) comprising three areas: course materials, class sessions, and communications. Once students are logged in, the experience mirrors that of an on-campus program, right from new student orientation. Students receive a welcome from the school’s dean, an introduction to program faculty, and a review of the school’s academic integrity policies and the values-based nature of the program.
In addition to hosting class sessions, the platform also allows students to connect with each other by joining existing study groups or creating new ones for asynchronous learning, or live meetings for students who want to meet and discuss classes or projects at a pre-determined time. Each new student is assigned a student support advisor, who is available to answer questions about everything from course schedules to technical concerns. Support during the program is available in all forms – online, offline, and in person during on campus intensive weekends, which students attend at least once during their program.
