The site visit is a crucial component of the academic accreditation process. Many nursing education programs have adopted electronic processes for document management and course delivery. In this article, the authors describe reasons for using an electronic resource room, changes made in document management systems, methods to provide electronic documentation access to site evaluators, and ways to link decisions directly to supporting evidence. Significant advantages were realized from the electronic resource room.
