Distance education at Cabarrus College refers to instruction where the instructor and student are separated geographically such that face-to-face communication is limited or absent. Instead, communication is accomplished by technological media. Synchronous or asynchronous communications may occur using audio, video, computer, or other electronic means, now known or hereafter developed, to teach a Cabarrus College course. Distance education courses provide greater flexibility to those students who might otherwise find it difficult to fit traditional class periods into busy work and family life schedules.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) degree is designed for registered nurses (RNs) who have graduated from either an associate degree or diploma program and who desire to expand their knowledge in the nursing profession. All classes are offered online, allowing you to earn your degree at your convenience and without having to sacrifice your present job or income.

Health Services Leadership and Development

The Health Services Leadership and Development bachelor’s completion program offers associate degreed allied health professionals the choice of two tracks: Leadership or Education. Both tracks feature the convenience of online learning - only the Healthcare Internship during the final semester will require an in-person learning experience at the chosen internship site. Graduates of the leadership track will develop the knowledge and skills needed to climb the clinical ladder or assume new administrative roles. In addition to gaining leadership skills, graduates of the education track will learn fundamental skillsets for teaching in higher education and conducting workforce training.

Medical Imaging

The baccalaureate Medical Imaging curriculum is designed to build upon an Associate Degree in imaging or an approved diploma program. Diploma graduates may need to complete prerequisite courses in general education prior to acceptance into the Medical Imaging degree program. The baccalaureate program is approximately a two year completion program.

Occupational Therapy

The entry-level Occupational therapy master’s degree program is designed for practicing OTAs to progress to occupational therapists. The program offers two tracks, a Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) track for OTAs with a prior bachelor’s degree, and a combined Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Health Studies/Master of Occupational Therapy (BSIHS/MOT) track for OTAs with an associate degree as their highest educational level.

The MOT track includes hybrid courses (online with every third weekend on-campus classes), as well as independent studies and fieldwork experiences.  The BSIHS/MOT track is all online courses for the first two semesters; the next four academic semesters include hybrid courses (online with every third weekend on-campus classes), independent studies, and fieldwork experiences.
