Online learning for nurses gets boost

The School of Nursing at Johns Hopkins University received $450,000 from investment firm Kentrick Group to expand its global outreach efforts for nurses and midwives.

The Global Alliance for Nursing and Midwifery, a project of the nursing school, will use the funds to develop additional online teaching modules and tools that will be accessible to health-care providers in diverse and remote settings around the world.

Project administrators say the investment comes at a time when nurses and midwives have been leaving their trades, or moving from their communities, in part due to isolation.

The new online tools are intended to enhance the online community created by the nursing school that links about 1,300 public-health practitioners and policy makers from 118 countries.
