17 institutions, over 300 courses

NEXus is a consortium of institutions that offer online doctoral programs in nursing that provide opportunities for and encourage students to take courses from other member institutions to further enrich their educational experiences.

Currently, 17 institutions across the nation participate in NEXus: which aims to address the nursing shortage by educating well-prepared nurse educators through application of distance accessible delivery methods, enabling rural nurses to remain in their home communities and be employed in rural nursing education programs.

More than 300 online courses are offered annual through the Exchange. For additional information, read the NEXus Annual Update.
