The Nightingale Education Group is piloting a micro-credentialing program designed to give nurses the skills, confidence, and competence to support rural communities and help meet the demand for rural nurses.

Course modules and all content are delivered online through asynchronous, virtual lessons supplemented by faculty support. Each module takes 4-5 weeks to complete, and the entire course should take approximately 16 weeks. Participants will implement a local project during the fourth module. CEUs will be offered at completion.

Courses include:

  • Health promotion for rural populations
  • Nursing care for rural populations
  • Rural health: Determinants, disparities, and solutions
  • Rural health capstone
