Today, many individuals have increased access to Internet service allowing accessibility to the WWW. In addition, the advancement of innovative technology has exploded beyond comprehension to support individuals and academic institutions in a variety of ways. At present, many healthcare professionals are being challenged to advance their professional level of education to further support state standards, regulations and patient care, in an effort to promote a higher level of safe quality outcomes. These opportunities provide academic institutions the ability to offer adult learners the chance to take higher level educational courses via web-based/distance education programs. The purpose of this article is to share the results of an exploratory study that examined the current learning environment of nursing students enrolled within an asynchronized distance education program.
