Meet the
Educational Offerings Web-Based



Web-based educational modules were developed as an approach to integrating CAM content into required courses within the Rush University College of Nursing. These modules were subsequently modified and, in conjunction with Nursing Spectrum, are being offered for nursing continuing education credits. Modules focus on either foundational/didactic content or have a case-based practice emphasis.
