As a nursing student, you have the opportunity obtain "Departmental Honors in Nursing." The honors option allows you to expand your studies and knowledge, and create exciting and rewarding special projects.
Faculty members guide and mentor you through your honors work. Departmental Honors in Nursing requirements include completion of “progression honors work” – initiated when students begin baccalaureate program work. Nursing honors students must also complete Nursing 4840: "Honors Seminar in Nursing." Work on capstone honors projects provides the stimulus for a broadened educational experience.
Honors students who complete all required work are given special recognition during graduation ceremonies, as well as having the honors designation noted on their official WSU transcript. This designation often provides extra weight for acceptance into graduate school.
