Baccalaureate Courses for Nurses Online and on Campus: A Comparison of Learning Outcomes
Kummerow, Andreas; Miller, Marcia; Reed, Rhonda
American Journal of Distance Education, v26 n1 p50-65 2012
A comparison of student learning outcomes between distance education and campus-based nursing students in a mental health course working toward registered nurse (RN) licensure in a baccalaureate (BS) degree program is presented. Learning outcomes were evaluated using results from a commercially developed content mastery test taken by students who completed a sophomore-level mental health course. Results utilizing independent "t" test analysis of archival data indicated no statistically significant differences between the distance education students and the campus-based students in either initial knowledge prior to the mental health course or in the educational effectiveness of the distance education and classroom-based delivery. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
