"COVID19 has brought a new awareness to the surface—the fact that we can still connect when we’re apart. This concept for healthcare providers is like a lifeline for many patients in the urban and rural areas. For nursing programs, it is imperative to offer a curriculum that is relevant to these changing times. For educators, preparing students to discover the use of technology in the form of Telehealth as a way of caring for their patients is strategic pedagogy. For students, applying Telehealth into practice is life-changing."

- Professor Dinorah Martinez-Anderson, South University Department of Nursing
