Interprofessional education has become a mainstay of undergraduate and graduate nursing curricula. However, with limitations to physical contact brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ability to provide such an experience was challenged. A remote session involving graduate family nurse practitioner, physical therapy, and occupational therapy students was devised using case studies in small groups with a faculty facilitator. Students evaluated the event using the Student Perceptions of Interprofessional Clinical Education-Revised instrument, version 2. This article focuses on the development of the program and use of the instrument with graduate students.
