The UW School of Nursing currently offers Technology Enhanced and Distance Learning (TEDL) options for select graduate courses and specialties. All specialties have some on-campus requirements, which vary by specialty. You can view a sample course grid of TEDL delivery methods — check with each specialty in the MN, MS, DNP and certificate programs for specific details about TEDL support or questions regarding clinical rotations (if applicable).
Currently, the BSN and PhD programs do not offer distance learning support.
As a TEDL student, your UW transcript, degree, tuition and financial aid will be identical to students who study on campus; your transcript will not indicate which courses were taken with TEDL support.
To be a successful TEDL student, you should:
- consider your learning style, strengths and preferences. Are you self-motivated? Do you work well independently?
- understand TEDL requires as much time as on-campus courses (e.g. attending lectures/class participation, completing assignments).
- be adept at using computers, including e-mail and other electronic media.
- have a computer that meets UW system recommendations, as well as a high-speed internet connection
If you have questions about distance learning options, contact the specialty you are interested in applying to.
