It was very organized and straight forward. The grading rubric was available for each assignment and each module was presented weekly, which allowed me to manage my family, work, and school obligations.

I liked the flexibility to work on assignments at my convenience.

The course assignments were relevant to my current job and nursing practice. The things I learned I actually used and helped me in my nursing practice.

Even though I am taking online courses I feel supported by the teachers and staff.
