Nice work! I enjoyed reading this. When I earned a distance-based master's degree, my favorite professors were the ones that I saw as the most engaged with us in discussions, but it's certainly a two-way street that really starts with the students being engaged.
I teach clinicals in an initial-licensure undergrad program, so when my students complain about things being hard, I try to have them think about all of the hard things that could happen to a nurse on any given shift (the EMR goes down, your patients have extensive needs, Joint Commission is in the house, you are precepting a nursing student, etc). They may get annoyed by working through a long nursing care plan, but in that process they are learning prioritization, critical thinking, and the ability to deal with frustration. Most days, they will need all of those skills as a nurse.
