Abstract

Although the number and diversity of online programs in graduate nursing education have proliferated, they have often outpaced the development of evaluation methods to ensure the quality of those offerings. Questions surrounding rigor remain, particularly with postmaster’s programs and students without advanced practice degrees. In this article, the authors explore the issue of rigor and describe some methods used to ensure rigor in a new DNP program conveyed to an online audience.
