Since 2007 the CNS has been working with the National Institute of Continuing Education for Nurses to develop distance education programming for nurses in rural Paraguay. With the rapid pace of change in health sciences and the increasing costs of transportation for health workers, the Ministry of Health in Paraguay identified distance education in nursing as an integral part of its strategy for improving the quality of care for the more than half of the population that lives outside urban centres. More than 1500 nurses have received continuing education via distance delivery through this CIDA-funded project.
