New MOOC For Nurses Set To Launch At CUW Nurses without an advanced degree will soon be able to continue their education at Concordia University Wisconsin’s (CUW) new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for its existing nursing program. The MOOC will be offered through the university’s Office of Continuing and Distance Education and is expected to launch soon. “We are hoping that this MOOC, focusing on the foundations for professional writing, will give students the refresher they need to boost their confidence and skills to be successful in graduate school,” said Dr. Sharon Chappy, dean of CUW School of Nursing. Students around the world have benefited from the many online courses offered by their colleges and universities similar to the one available to nurses at CUW. The course at Concordia is set up with this in mind as students enrolling in the course are able to participate on their own time, at their own pace, for free and should be able to complete it in a matter of hours. As a result, skills can be gained and an official “badge” is earned to show future employers their accomplishment when viewing a students resume or LinkeIn profile.
