The School of Nursing's Fall Convocation will take place on Friday, August 29th from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. This festive celebration will serve as the school’s official welcome for incoming nursing students and faculty. At the event, the school will also pay tribute to the outstanding achievements of our Accelerated BSN students. The event's keynote speaker is Emory University Provost, Dr. Claire Sterk.
For more than a year, Emory has partnered with Coursera to offer free, not-for-credit, massive open online courses, or MOOCs. This type of online education has been popular — with some 241,000 students from around the world registering for Emory’s Coursera courses.
This fall Emory expands its Coursera presence once more by rolling out several new courses, including a course on Childbirth: A Global Perspective, by School of Nursing Professor Lynn Sibley, set to start October 1.
