Nursing Concepts Online (NCO)
Nursing Concepts Online (NCO) is an Elsevier product where you will complete assignments during your ELA's. This platform may be used to help teach you skills by reading about the skill, watching a demonstration video, and completing a quiz. Your earned score on the quiz will be transferred into your Canvas gradebook. You must score at least 80% on the quiz if it relates to your "Skill Checkoff Sheet". If you do not score at least an 80%, your course Evaluator will contact you and assign a remediation assignment.
NCO may also be used to complete a "HESI Patient Review" assignment on patient's with conditions that relate to the concept you are learning. In these assignments, you will review data on your assigned patient and answer questions that will help you learn what is necessary to provide the best care for this patient. You will earn a score on this assignment that will be transferred into your Canvas gradebook.
Example of what NCO will look like:
HESI Patient Review example:
Your grades will be transferred into your Canvas gradebook by your course Evaluator. If your NCO assignment is to be completed during your scheduled virtual ELA, you will be given 48 hours from the time your ELA ends to get all scheduled assignments completed. After the 48 hours have passed, any missing or late assignments will be given a score of 0. You are still responsible for turning in all assignments to be able to pass the course. The score of 0 will remain for any late work turned in. If your NCO assignment is to be done during an Asynchronous (independent) ELA, you will have until the end of that week (Sunday 11:59 PM MST) to complete that activity. You are still responsible for turning in all assignments for the ability to pass the course. The score of 0 will remain for any late work turned in.
