CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY – SCHOOL OF NURSING

Case Western Reserve University’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing (FPB), one of the top ranked schools in the nation. FPB stands out as a leader thanks to its rich history and world-renowned reputation as an innovator in nursing education, research, and service. FPB wanted to offer its faculty and students a better way to administer and take proctored online exams while at the same time protecting the integrity of the program. In the past, when students took exams, they had to schedule remote proctors that had to be approved by faculty. But this had to be done far in advance and created extra work. FPB had also tried using a live proctoring solution, but students found it intrusive – thought it was ‘creepy’. And since they had to schedule their exams – it wasn’t terribly convenient. Furthermore, given the number of exams that nursing students take during a semester, it was also expensive. That’s when Elizabeth Madigan, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at FPB turned to RPNow, by Software Secure. She really liked the convenience that RPNow offered and its affordability. Most of FPB’s students are adult learners, often balancing school with their nursing careers – so an on-demand option was a must.
