The Departmental Honors Program in nursing was established to recognize senior-level students with superior academic achievement and to facilitate their participation in independent study, which may include, but is not limited to, research and teaching/community projects. This program is intended to enhance the educational experience of the outstanding student; therefore, their independent study is intended to go above and beyond the usual scope of the curriculum offered in the baccalaureate program. Completion of the honors program is recorded on the student’s permanent academic record.
If you complete the departmental honors program, you will graduate with the designation “Honors in Nursing” on your transcript. Copies of your work will be bound and stored in Adams Library and in the School of Nursing archives.
