Nutrition and Health

Fast Track Course

carrotThis is an online, learner directed, college level course in Nutrition and Health. This course meets the pre-requisite requirement for the University of Rochester School of Nursing's Accelerated Nursing Program. It is also possible for students in other programs to take the course!

 In this course you will work your way through 12 modules that cover healthy nutrition through the life cycle, selected cultural variation, diet and physical activity, medical nutrition therapy, selected diseases, and food safety. The modules include readings, lectures, powerpoints, learning activities and assignments. You are then assessed by a test at the end of each module

Although you can work at your own pace and under your own direction, the professor is available to you via email to check your progress, suggest additional study materials, and answer any questions you may have. This is a three credit class, and it is designed to take each student approximately 125 hours, which is the equivalent amount to the time that it is expected college students spend both in class and on outside readings and assignments for any college-level 3 credit class.
