Broderick (faculty mentor: Dr. Nancy Bowllan) presented on her Trauma-Informed Care Education Integration Project; Sullivan (faculty mentor: Professor Krista Scorsone) presented on her Autism Spectrum Project; Capuson (faculty mentor: Professor Susan Read) presented on her Palliative in Acute Care Project; and Czup (faculty mentor: Dr. Christine Boev) presented on her Adolescent Health Care Project.

The four Honors recipients are among the 73 students to graduate this December.

Students who wish to graduate with Honors in Nursing must meet certain academic requirements and work with a nursing faculty mentor to develop a project proposal. The project is completed during the final semester of the student’s senior year and presented at a Wegmans School of Nursing Colloquium. Honors in Nursing are conferred by vote of the nursing faculty to graduating undergraduate students who have achieved academic distinction and have completed an Honors Project.
