Complying with state changes while preserving accreditation
In 2010, new state requirements required Lake Superior College to cut five credits from the nursing curriculum. At the same time, low NCLEX pass rates were putting accreditation at risk.
Since many Lake Superior students were embarking on second careers, faculty wanted an active learning approach that better met their needs, with more integrated, intuitive resources and plenty of hands-on learning.
Faculty also wanted to bridge the gap between clinical practice and the classroom setting — especially when COVID-19 closed clinical sites.
