Online, Blackboard, IT Support

The School of Nursing offers a wide variety of learning formats. Some courses are taught fully in the classroom setting while others are fully online. Several courses offer a combination of classroom content and online format; these classes are considered hybrid. The online learning center has been developed to assist our students in participating in online coursework (whether hybrid or fully online).

Each of the programs that we offer will designate on their program pages which courses are fully online, hybrid online, or classroom only.

The UR School of Nursing provides the resources you need to succeed in your online courses. If you need help, and can’t find the right resource below, see us in person at the ITS Help desk, email, or call (585) 275-7500.
