“I chose my home school because of the opportunity to take electives through NEXus. I plan to take both of my electives through NEXus.”

"We want to provide the highest quality education to nurses wherever they are."

— Kathy Magilvy, Professor, Associate Dean, University of Colorado Denver

 

"You’re working with people all over the country and even with people out of the country on nursing issues, on the latest and the greatest and you don’t need a classroom for that. I didn’t think I would learn. I was so skeptical. I’m just a skeptic at heart."

— Katreena Collette-Merrill, Doctoral student

 

"When you look across the country, I think there are currently over 36,000 faculty but most of them are planning to retire in the next five years. So that means we’ll lose potentially a third of our faculty at the very time we need them most."

— Maureen Keefe, Dean & Professor, University of Utah

 

"By our delivering distance education in a variety of formats, we enable that nurse to stay in the community, to stay with their family, to work when they’re not in school and still engage in a high quality education."

— Kathy Magilvy, Professor, Associate Dean, University of Colorado Denver

 

 

"Where else can you take courses at 5 or 6 or 7 universities that really offer a breadth of knowledge that you’re not going to get at other institutions."

— Timothy Ebner, University Registrar, University of Utah

"When I teach beginning nursing students, they learn, they’ve grown up with web pages and beyong that blogs, wikis, fb, and myspace. Through NEXus there are courses that allow me to understand and actually have that appreciation for how they’re learning, by using this technology. So I’m meeting them where they learn best."

— Lynne Andrus, Doctoral student

 

"NEXus allows us to be more confident that our electives, which will only appeal to a small number of our students, will run."

— Cindy Mendelson, Associate Professor, University of New Mexico
