Study Abroad and Electives

Nursing elective courses provide students the opportunity to explore an area of interest. Courses cover a variety of topics including grief, end of life care, emotional health of children and adolescents, healthy aging, creative arts and aging, and informatics. These courses are taught in various formats: fully online, hybrid, and face-to-face. NSG 399, Global Health Perspectives and Challenges in Central America, also meets the Foundation III Global requirement and may be taken for 3 or 6 credits. Nursing students in both curricula are required to take one nursing elective course.

Excellence in Clinical Agencies

A variety of accredited hospitals and clinical facilities provide quality care and excellent nursing role models. Miami University's student nurses benefit from experience in several different healthcare systems including major medical centers in metropolitan areas and clinical facilities in suburban and rural locations. These clinical settings provide students with opportunities to interact with clients of different ages, cultures, and diverse health care needs.
