Learning and completing your Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing online requires sufficient technology and Internet access to complete the coursework.
The online learning management system (Desire2Learn, known as D2L for short) is accessible from nearly any device, from desktop to smartphone. However, we recommend using a desktop or laptop computer that meets these minimum hardware specifications:
- High-speed connection to the Internet
- CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive: Note that some software may require a DVD drive for installation
- Hard drive: 160GB
- Monitor and graphics card capable of 1024 x 768 display (minimum)
- Stereo sound card, speakers and/or headset, microphone
Desktop or laptop computers (rather than tablets) are highly recommended because of their ability to open and run multiple applications for an extended period of time, their compatibility with and ability to install new applications, and more.
If you have a slow Internet connection, you may want to look for high-speed access from an alternate source, such as satellite or wireless offered by a mobile provider.
