ABSTRACT: This article highlights the development and implementation of interactive training experiences for graduate nursing students as part of specialty training in endocrinology. Emphasis was placed on accomplishing the shift from on-campus to virtual training while maintaining fidelity and student satisfaction. A total of 106 graduate nursing students from five cohorts submitted evaluations. Student satisfaction remained high regardless of whether the content was delivered in person or virtually. Most students in the virtual cohorts evaluated the online training positively. Student presentation grades were highest with on-campus delivery. Transitioning in-person training to a virtual environment can be an effective method of delivering nurse practitioner education while promoting student satisfaction. Recommendations for optimizing hybrid learning experiences are offered based on adult learning principles.
