Abstract

According to the Monthly Labor Review, 1 million new nurses will be needed by the year 2010. Returning inactive nurses to the profession is undoubtedly an economical and cost-effective approach to address this need. Embracing an online methodology will reach nurses in less populated, geographically dispersed areas with limited access to traditional educational opportunities. On the basis of the principles of good practice, it is imperative that educators evaluate the effectiveness of distance methodology. This article provides empirical data supporting the online learning process and consumer satisfaction of an online nurse refresher course.
