University Groups with Student Representation

School of Nursing Honors Program

The purpose of the Honors Program is to encourage and support the beginning development of scholarship in undergraduate nursing students. Honor students conduct a research study while working closely with their faculty advisor. This experience provides them with an opportunity to critically examine a phenomenon of interest to them.

Actively participating in the research process not only enhances students’ nursing practice, but also lays the foundation for future graduate studies. The honors students usually disseminate their findings through such mechanisms as professional presentations and manuscript publication. The Honors Program sponsors a number of events and opportunities throughout the academic year to broaden students’ undergraduate experience.

For information on Honors opportunities at the University of Connecticut visit their website. For questions or comments about the School of Nursing Honors Program contact: Professor Deborah McDonald.

Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society

The UConn School of Nursing chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, Mu Chapter, sponsors several events each year that enrich the student experience by presenting programs focusing on scholarship and research in nursing.
