Community is more than just "where you live". At Frontier Nursing University, learning at a distance is called Community-Based Education. Why?
- Your community means going out into your home community for learning experiences so that you can make a difference in your community when you graduate.
- Your community includes FNU students, faculty and staff.
- Community means interacting with students, faculty and staff in Hyden, in forums, on the phone and in e-mails.
- Community means interacting with classmates, other students and faculty regularly. Loneliness is one of the biggest obstacles to success and being a member of a community guards against this problem.
- "Distance education" could be a correspondence course, but that's not what Frontier offers.
- "Distance education" could mean never setting foot in the classroom. Frontier doesn't think that is wise for future health care professionals.
- "Distance education" could mean never meeting your classmates. Frontier believes that loneliness is not a good motivator and presents one of the biggest obstacles to success.
