Abstract

Despite the education challenges faced by healthcare institutions, the use of online technology (eLearning) to demonstrate competency for practicing nurses in the acute care environment has only recently been explored. The authors discuss the implementation of an online-based nursing education competency. The results demonstrate that the use of the eLearning format provides both a satisfactory and effective alternative learning medium. The study provides support for the use of online learning in the healthcare setting.
