Study Abroad and Elective Courses

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. 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.
