Nursing honors program

The nursing major honors program is designed to create an intellectual adventure to challenge selected students. Opportunities are offered to study an area of interest in nursing in greater depth, to conduct research with a mentor, and to enhance leadership skills. Features of the honors program include seminars, a mentored relationship with a nursing faculty member, and the completion of a senior honors thesis. Recent honors graduates are highlighted on the undergraduate student research page.

To qualify for the honors program, nursing students must be in the top 15%-20% of their incoming nursing class and write a personal statement addressing their qualifications and expectations. Other criteria include the quality of the applicant’s pre-nursing course work and involvement in student and/or community organizations. Information about the honors program is sent to students at the time of acceptance into the major. Students must be accepted into the College of Nursing honors program upon admission into the major in order to continue with honors course work and to graduate with distinction.
