The purpose of this project was to facilitate the implementation of a successful telehealth education program in a pre-licensure nursing program at a regional university in the Midwest. The project took place at Pittsburg State University Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing. Participants included eighty-six undergraduate senior students in their last semester of nursing school enrolled in Community Health Nursing preparing to begin their nursing career. The group completed a 20-hour self-paced telehealth educational program offering made available through a partnership with Dr.’s Carolyn Rutledge and Tina Gustin of Old Dominion University Center for Telehealth Innovation, Education and Research (C-TIER). The educational program offering consisted of didactic content, experiential learning activities, student projects, simulated learning and clinical encounters. Upon completion of the educational program, participants were invited to complete a voluntary anonymous feedback survey. The survey was offered online through the software program Qualtrics. Participants were sent a link via Canvas© Learning Management System and invited to complete the survey. The survey consisted of nineteen questions, sixteen questions rating participant perception of the educational program offering and three open-ended questions. The project conclusion revealed overall positive feedback of the educational program from the majority of respondents.
