How It Works

Technical Requirements

You will need a computer, email, and high-speed Internet access to complete the online course. If you do not have Internet service at home, you need to make arrangements to go to your local AHEC or public library for access to the exams and online parts of the course.

Course Access and Materials

Your course materials will be delivered primarily online in a learning management system called Sakai and in a comprehensive textbook, which will be mailed to your home address. After completing each module, you will take an open-book, online final examination using Sakai and receive immediate feedback on your exam grade. In order to receive continuing education credit, you must pass the final exam for each module with a grade of 80 percent or higher. You may fail no more than two examinations, including exams you retake. If two or more exams are failed, the course must be retaken and repaid in full.

Policies and Restrictions

You will be expected to abide by the following policies and restrictions.

  • You may enroll at any time after you provide your RN license number.
