The MU Sinclair School of Nursing’s Nursing Outreach and Distance Education (NODE) holds an academy for directors of nursing in Missouri’s long-term care facilities. This annual academy lasts several months with six interactive videoconference meetings occurring once per month. A group comes to CSD each month for this important professional development and connects to colleagues across the sate. Topics of discussion have included power in decision making and ethics. Just wanted to share this great application of distance learning!
