Online Accelerated Nursing Coursework

Our online accelerated nursing coursework builds the foundation for the essential nursing concepts you’ll need to know for other parts of the program — and in your future nursing career. Our online learning platform incorporates flexibility into your schedule, allowing you to choose when and where you learn.

Deadlines for assignments and exams still apply, but the online platform gives you the option to “attend class” when it works best for you. Plus, if you missed something in a video-based lesson the first time, you can always rewind, restart, or pause whenever needed.

While our online accelerated nursing courses allow you to study from anywhere — at any time — you should be ready to dedicate a significant amount of time to your studies every week. After all, these courses lay the groundwork for the nursing skills you’ll hone during hands-on skills and simulation labs at our nursing education center and during clinical rotations at top area hospitals and clinical agencies across metro Pittsburgh.

Online Learning Environment

Through our online accelerated nursing program, you’ll complete a majority of your nursing coursework through Canvas, an interactive, collaborative e-learning platform that allows you to:

  • Read and listen to nursing coursework material.
  • Watch video content that visually introduces nursing concepts.
  • Participate in simulated learning activities using interactive learning objects.
  • Complete and/or upload course assignments.
  • Interact with instructors and other students via scheduled chat sessions and a discussion forum.

Benefits of Online Coursework

We understand students learn and retain information in different ways. That’s what makes the online component of our blended learning model so valuable.

No matter your learning style — visual, aural, tactile, or social — we designed Misericordia University’s online accelerated nursing coursework to immerse you in subject material and to help you retain important nursing concepts through various forms of media.

Far from just staring at a computer screen, our online learning platform comprises discussion board exercises and interactive learning activities, including video and task-based simulations to help you learn. For example, you may come across a matching activity that requires you to drag and drop an organ into its proper location in the human body.

Support Resources

Even though you’ll complete your nursing theory courses online, you won’t be working through your accelerated nursing coursework alone. As a student in our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, you’ll have access to the same resources as Misericordia University’s on-campus students.

The dedicated nursing instructors who oversee your online accelerated nursing coursework are readily accessible through 24-hour technical support. You can contact online learning specialists if you have any technical questions about the learning management system.
