dc.description.abstract The outcomes of Web-based courses in schools of nursing in higher education are being examined as distance learning becomes more prevalent. Outcome data is needed by educators in relation to the success of Web-based learning to establish levels of quality and ultimately to improve teaching and learning. The purpose of this study is to examine graduate nursing students' perceptions of Web-based courses. The Billings' framework for assessing outcomes and practices in Web-based courses will be used for this study. The population of the study will be graduate students enrolled in one of two Midwestern universities offering totally delivered Web-based programs. A convenience sample will include approximately 50 graduate nursing students enrolled during the fall and spring semesters of the 2002-2003 academic year who agree to participate in the study. The survey will be administered during two semesters. Each student will complete a Distance Education Course Evaluation, which is ten-item survey with a 5 point Likert scale, to examine outcomes of the Web-based courses at the end of the semester. Surveys will be forwarded to the students by e-mail attachment. Essential information about the research study will be disclosed through a cover letter accompanying the survey. Surveys will be returned to a central office in the School of Nursing where files will be collated. Participation will be voluntary, and semester grades will be unaffected if students choose not to participate. No risks have been identified by participation in the study. Data will remain anonymous. These outcomes will serve to guide the assessment of nursing courses and programs offered on the Web, to establish quality, and to improve quality outcomes. en_US
