Abstract

Continuing education programs that increase nursing knowledge and collaboration are needed across urban and rural settings. A survey was distributed to determine interest in nursing grand rounds and preferred educational modalities at two unaffiliated hospitals. Results revealed that nurses from the urban and rural hospitals were interested in nursing grand rounds as a recorded online offering, thus providing valuable information used to develop a nursing grand rounds program.
