Norwich's Nursing Curriculums are Progressive, Experiential
Developed First ROTC
Diminutive Norwich University in Vermont is unique among colleges for its multi-pronged approach to education: the college integrates a military cadet system with a traditional campus. Cadets and traditional students study and live together. The college mission, since the early 1800s, has been to turn out corps of leaders that are able to apply relevant skills, communicate clearly, and take innovative leads when necessary. This emphasis on leadership is the fundamental core of all of Norwich University's academics.
History of Leadership and Innovation
Outside the brick and mortar college environment, Norwich has become renowned for its progressive and innovative online graduate programs. But the programs offered through the university suggest the larger mission-Masters degrees in Leadership, Information Assurance, Diplomacy, Military History, Education, Justice Administration, Public Administration, and Nursing-educating savvy leaders in fields that require all the natural leaders they can get, and where fundamental social change happens.
Norwich's traditional campus holds fast to a number of historical firsts; it's the site of the first Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC), and the founder, Captain Alden Partridge, was a pioneer in experiential learning. Undergraduate campus-based programs run the gamut from Accounting to Studies in War and Peace. Schools of study include: Art and Architecture, Business and Management, Engineering, Humanities, Mathematics and Sciences, Social Sciences, and National Services.
Online Graduate School
The online graduate school programs continue the tradition of Norwich, that of molding industry leaders with much more than book sense behind their degrees. Norwich's online programs also provide experiential curriculums. The underlying idea is to motivate students to instigate learning, to collaborate with peers, and to pursue innovation within their fields.
Students engaged in online Masters degree studies will participate synchronously and asynchronously. Most online discussion is left for the student to self-pace, but some assignments and coursework may require participation in real-time chat and message systems. Regardless students are not isolated, but are expected and required to interact with each other via communication technologies. This is a key underpinning of Norwich education, collaborative learning.
The Masters of Science in Nursing fits neatly alongside the other online graduate degrees, primarily for its interdisciplinary approach-advanced practice nurses taught to think and behave like leaders as opposed to followers.
