  • 1.  Corona Virus Contingency Plans

    Posted 03-03-2020 15:49

    Dear colleagues,


    I am sure we are all working on contingency plans for our nursing programs. I just checked the AACN site to see if there were any new submissions of plans and I did not find any.


    As we are starting our contingency planning, I am wondering if any of you are further down the road and have something created that could assist the rest of us. If you have anything that would be helpful, please share.

    Greetings from GMU-

    Our students are on spring break this week so we have a bit of a reprieve.  We are working on plans to hold courses online and hope to continue clinical as long as possible.   I have found the University of Maryland documents helpful and am in the process of developing similar messaging.  We have only had one clinical site cancel clinical at this point.  Here is the link to UMD.
