Honors Program, Nursing
The School of Nursing Honors Program provides academically talented and highly motivated nursing students with meaningful learning experiences that will prepare them to continuously learn, apply, and create new knowledge throughout their lifetime. Class time is spent cultivating critical thinking, skills in self-expression, and independent analysis of material.
This program is designed for students who are looking for a challenge and seek greater depth in their educational experiences above the basic requirements for the nursing degree. The School of Nursing Honors Program provides opportunities for in-depth study and professional development, nurtures development as a nurse leader and/or educator, and prepares students for graduate school.
Students will have opportunities:
- Working with faculty conducting research
- Mentoring lower classmen
- Cultivating leadership through community service and involvement
- Interacting with faculty in small-group settings
The School of Nursing Honors Program is designed for academically talented nursing students. This program is intended as a complement to the university Honors Program in General Education. Participation may be in addition to or independent of the university program.
The transcript of students earning honors in nursing will be designated at graduation with the phrase “with Honors” (e.g. BSN with Honors). Each course will be designated on the transcript as determined by the Registrar’s office.
