Nursing students in developing countries are about to get even more access to resources and even more support from Nurses International.
An innovative learning management system and an artificial intelligence tutor created by VersityU are shattering barriers worldwide.
At Nurses International, we’re committed to helping nurses obtain the education, the resources, and the opportunities to become change-agents in their own communities. That’s why we’re proud to announce our partnership with VersityU.
One of the great challenges faced by nursing students in developing countries is having access to world-class support. To overcome this barrier, VersityU has created an artificial intelligence (AI) tutor that will be there whenever a student needs support almost anywhere in the world.
The VersityU tutor can run on low bandwidth and can be used from a phone, tablet, laptop, or pc. Access is granted to students through their programs when the program partners with Nurses International. It’s a remarkably advanced resource and thanks to the support of donors, it’s being provided to students at no cost.
In addition, VersityU is developing a learning management system to host Nurses International’s Open Access Project, a project that will put an entire nursing education ladder (CNA, LPN, ADN, BSN, and MSN) at the fingertips of educators and students who are most in need, at no cost to the institutions adopting the resources.
This new learning management system will be customized by experts at VersityU and Nurses International for use in low resource countries, particularly places where internet service is intermittent.
To test the value of the Open Access Project, three courses (Med Surg I, II, and II) have been offered over the last few weeks from Nurse International’s website. The courses have been downloaded for use in more than 20 countries and counting!
To increase accessibility, Nurses International and VersityU are beginning a partnership to translate materials into other languages. The first project is the translation of a biology course into Spanish in a partnership with Nursing ABC.
It’s time to DO. Together we can improve the health of the world one nurse, one person, and one community at a time!
