The NEAT Project

Six schools of nursing are participating in NEAT, the Nursing Education and Technology Project, which aims to take online education in health care to a higher level. The goal is to develop small units of content, or modules, that can be assembled into different formats, shared among institutions, and tailored for specific groups of students. Jeanette McDonald, associate faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is project director.
