Undergraduate Honors Nursing

The School of Nursing Honors Program builds on and reflects the UD Honors Program. The program values and promotes unique opportunities for Honors students including increased depth of exploration of course content, working side-by-side with faculty on their research, and experiencing clinical practice at more than one site for a course. In addition, Honors students have initiated and been major contributors to service-learning.
