Designed to provide the student with in-depth experience within a chosen field of practice. Emphasis is directed toward use of the nursing process within the stress framework parameters in refinement of clinical skills in the delivery of quality nursing care for individuals, groups, families, or communities. Includes experience in operationalizing the entire role spectrum of the professional nurse. The focus of the Nursing Honors Program in the senior year (NUR415H and NUR 420H) is to continue the thorough and rigorous exploration of an area of individual student interest in nursing and to build upon the learning and work accomplished in the Junior year. These assignments are intended to enhance existing coursework and are an extension of, or in addition to, the assignments that other undergraduate students complete in the nursing major. These activities support reflective professional practice, enhance faculty-student collaboration and communication, and demand rigorous academic written work and independent research by the honors student.
