Abstract

This paper discusses WebLearn, an online instructional tool developed to provide a baseline set of technological competencies to students in the School of Nursing Online Masters' Program (OMP) at the University of Virginia. The students using the technology are primarily working nurses who chose the online and off-grounds route to continue their education. The University of Virginia developed and implemented a Master's level program in Community Public Health Leadership and Health Systems Management to provide access to graduate education for nurses throughout the Commonwealth, focusing to a large extent on rurally located nurses who were the most disadvantaged by location in the pursuit of graduate education. Through the implementation and full roll-out of WebLearn, UVA aims to put in place processes, assessments, and practices in which students' needs are identified, evaluated and remediated.
