NU 264 01: Professional Nursing II focuses on the transition from the student to practitioner role. The increased enrollment in this last required nursing course for graduating seniors motivated Judy Vessey of the William F. Connell School of Nursing to move from a straight lecture format to an interactive web-based format in order to meet the course goals of developing critical thinking and practical technology skills for the practitioner. Judy Vessey’s central aim for this site was to enhance the course content and delivery by using a variety of technological applications for class preparation and in-class activities. Web based class material enables students to access them ahead of time, as well as download audio-visuals onto a notebook computer for class use.
Judy Vessey collaborated with Instructional Design and eTeaching Services staff and a graphic design consultant to create a contemporary, visually appealing design organized around providing reading and assignment materials to students in an efficient manner. The site allows for easy connections to assigned readings, links to external sources relevant to practicing nurses, video clips, and additional material used in the classroom.
