Using online courses is one way to simplify orientation programs and leverage educator resources. Three critical care courses were created using a distributed authoring model with geographically diverse clinical experts. A companion online orientation course prepares preceptors to assist with clinical application. Course outcomes include preparation for practice, career mobility/advancement, and learner satisfaction.
