Directed Studies in Nursing (3 or 6)

A directed study is intended to serve as a learning experience in a coherent area of study initiated by a student in consultation with a faculty advisor. The courses are intended to complement core courses and support learning and to prepare for the masters completion projects or doctoral theses.

General Guidelines:

Typically, courses are 3 credits. However, directed or guided independent study courses can have a 3 credit or 6 credit value, depending on the learning contract established between the directed study supervisor & student. MSN students may take up to 6 credits of directed or guided independent study courses and doctoral student may take up to 12 credits of directed or guided independent study courses over their entire programs.
