Technology increasingly plays a central role in many aspects of nursing education. The School of Nursing values the integration of technology into classroom and online instruction and provides a wide variety of services to support our instructional, research, and administrative missions.
Technology within the school is guided by the School of Nursing Technology Plan, developed by a committee of administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The plan identifies the role technology plays within the school and establishes guidelines, policies, and procedures to govern its use. The plan is reviewed every two years and updated to reflect new objectives and priorities.
The School of Nursing provides various computer services for students and faculty including technologically-enhanced classrooms, both stationary and mobile computer labs, a state-of-the-art Learning Resources Center, and faculty and student instructional support services.
The School of Nursing mobile computing lab is housed in MGH 306. Policies and Procedures governing its use, as well as a reservation form for faculty, can be found at the link below.
