Nursing and Medical Training Organizations Choose D2L Brightspace

Personalized training can help address shortages in medical fields like nursing by supporting the delivery of high-quality educational experiences

Press Release

D2L, a global learning technology company, is helping colleges, universities and corporate partners train and upskill in the medical field by delivering an easy-to-use and flexible learning management system. In addition, D2L offers creative services and course development that can help these clients meet the needs of their learners.  

Among the institutions that have chosen D2L Brightspace is University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy (UHSP) in St. Louis, Missouri, serving nearly 700 students. Founded in 1864 as St. Louis College of Pharmacy, UHSP has been committed to providing world-class health care education for more than 155 years. Taking a holistic approach to health sciences education, UHSP equips students with the skills and confidence needed to make real-world change and have impactful futures in health care. UHSP will leverage D2L Brightspace to house their online program offerings under one unified and comprehensive space. The University will also use Learning and Creative Services to develop compelling and engaging course content.  

“We needed a scalable and customizable learning management system that would adapt with us as we grow, and D2L Brightspace proved to be the perfect fit,” said Jeanene Singleton, Director of Academic Technology at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy. “We’re excited to partner with D2L to help us reach our mission to improve community health through education and become a leader in health education and research.” 

“There is no better way to help change the world for the better than through education — and that’s especially true when it comes to medical education,” said Dr. Cristi Ford, Vice President of Academic Affairs at D2L. “UHSP has played an integral role in advancing the medical field for more than 155 years and I’m excited to partner with them as they pursue their mission to educate the health care leaders of tomorrow and foster a healthier society.” 

Recently, D2L Brightspace’s continuing education and professional development opportunities have been a differentiator for some top higher education institutions in medicine, including: 

  • University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) – In December 2022, the UIC Office of Community Engagement and Neighborhood Health Partnership (OCEAN-HP) launched a Community Health Workers program to train individuals to become Community Health Workers (CHW) and enhance the skill set of existing CHWs. The University of Illinois at Chicago/OCEAN-HP selected Brightspace to help scale the program and create self-paced courses. 
  • Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science (GSC) – In April 2022, in search of instructional design assistance to modernize courses and create new offerings, GSC now has access to D2L’s creative services team as Premium subscribers.   

They join other healthcare, medical and nursing institutions already using D2L Brightspace including: MGH Institute of Health Professions, Mayo Clinic, Medical University of South Carolina, Ultimate Medical Academy, Chattanooga College Medical, Dental & Technical Careers, Inc., and others.
