Abstract

Technological advances and the global economy in the 21st century have shifted the traditional practices in adult education and lifelong learning in healthcare organizations. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital changed its traditional 2-day nursing classroom dysrhythmia course to an e-learning platform. The role of the clinical nurse specialist in the planning and implementation of this case is presented. Nursing staff development and the clinical nurse specialists proved to be driving forces for the transformation of the course, reinforcement of learning, and promotion of future educational technology.
