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.
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. All directed or guided independent study courses involve a written contract between the student and a faculty member with whom the student negotiates a course.
