Undergraduates who are part of the honors program at the IU School of Nursing at IUPUI can take part in research, evidence-based practice (EBP), and dissemination of scholarly work through elective coursework in the traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program. To be part of the honors program, undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative IU GPA greater than 3.5.
When you become an honors student, you will have faculty mentorship alongside research that is advancing the cause of nursing and practice. Eligible students learn about the honors program in their second or third year of the nursing program.
You will enjoy small groups or one-on-one with your faculty mentor while you work on a research proposal, collect and analyze data, and interpret the results in context. You will also disseminate meaningful results through abstract development and submission for presentation at professional conferences. You may also be able to submit a manuscript for publication in a scholarly journal.
Research topics and mentors are determined by faculty availability and will likely require work—often conducted remotely—through the summer. If the relentless pursuit of knowledge drives you as it has hundreds of other nursing students, contact Celeste Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.See a list of past and current student research topics
