Additional Information For Online Students

  • Considerations for Government, Military, or VA Personnel: Many hospitals, all government offices, VA hospitals, and military bases/hospitals have blocked access to streaming media and other sites. This means that you will not be able to listen to lectures or, possibly, access your courses. You must have access to Saint Louis University Trudy Busch Valentine School of Nursing courses outside of your employment or military bases.
  • Internet Connectivity: High speed/broadband (audio/video) cable service or DSL is recommended. Modem dial up and satellite can be problematic because of lower speed connections.
  • Smartphones and Tablets: Mobile apps for tablets and smartphones are available for some of the products used for course content delivery such as Blackboard and Tegrity. Not all features are necessarily available in these apps or on mobile devices. All students should have access to a computer to complete their program of study.

Please have all necessary hardware, software including browser and plug-ins well in advance of the course. Also, test your computer capabilities and Internet access prior to enrolling in the course.
