Are Internet-based nursing degrees the wave of the future? The University of California at Los Angeles School of Nursing will offer students the option of getting a master’s degree on-line. The Internet-based degree-granting program is one of the first in the country offered by a large research-oriented university.
Beginning in fall 2001, the program will allow students working toward a master’s degree in nursing administration to satisfy course requirements on-line. Students will be allowed to attend the program’s 11 courses, plus take any of four electives on the Internet. There also is the option of attending some classes in person and others on-line.
The on-line courses will cost an additional $30-$150 per course and will include 24-hour access to technology assistance. Participating students will be required to attend regular chat room sessions with their instructor, in addition to "attending" lectures on-line.
