The NEAT project.

Six schools of nursing are participating in NEAT, the Nursing Education and Technology Project, which aims to take online education in health care to a higher level. The goal is to develop small units of content, or modules, that can be assembled into different formats, shared among institutions, and tailored for specific groups of students. Jeanette McDonald, associate faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is project director.

Through NEAT, a nationwide team is working to identify common challenges in distance health care education and then develop and test academic content. The group will focus on health disparities and patient safety, topics useful for other health professions. Working with UW-Madison are Indiana University, the University of Detroit-Mercy, Arkansas State University, the University of North Dakota, and the University of Kansas. The Association of Academic Health Centers is also a key partner.
