Dive Deeper Into Nursing Research

The purpose of the Honors Program is to encourage and support the development of scholarship in undergraduate nursing students.

University of Connecticut’s Honors Program invites talented and motivated rising sophomores and rising juniors to apply and participate. A minimum 3.4 GPA is required. Honor students conduct a research study while working closely with their advisor. This experience provides them with an opportunity to critically examine a phenomenon of interest to them that is also important to nursing and health care.

Actively participating in the research process not only enhances students’ nursing practice, but also lays the foundation for future graduate studies. Honors students usually disseminate their findings through professional presentations and manuscript publication.

The Honors Program also sponsors a number of events and opportunities throughout the academic year to broaden students’ undergraduate experience.
