Nursecom's is dedicated to creating rich learning experiences that fit the learner's needs. A rich learning experience:

  • is effective (performance is improved)
  • is efficient (occurs over the shortest period possible, focusing only on the 'need to know')
  • is engaging (immerses the learner in a experience that captures the learner's attention)

Our courses and learning tools are fashioned to facilitate a rich learning experience. Our learning tools are capsules of well-defined skills or information presented in a dynamic, interactive format. The learning tools are underpinned by Bandura's learning theory, Roger's Diffusion theory, Csikszentmihalyi's Flow theory and the concept of internet time - immediacy and convenience are now the norm. A white paper is available below on the development of the ECG Simulator, Nursecom's most utilized learning tool.
