Iowa Online Nurse Residency Program

The Nurse Residency Task Force in the Iowa Action Coalition has developed a competency-based curriculum for a nurse residency program that can be completed using online tools. We've partnered with the Institute for Public Health Practice at the University of Iowa to develop interactive, online modules to deliver didactic content to nurse residents. The modules include scenarios to help the residents apply concepts in different settings, such as long term care facilities, acute care, and home health.

An article by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation about the online residency program is available by clicking here.

Attached is a summary sheet with pricing for the program.

Enrollment in the program started in July 2014. For more information, please contact Nicole Weathers at or 319-384-1676.
