Grant Summary

$50,000 over 24 months to develop and pilot a humanities-based “mini-mester” (i.e., an 8-week module) to be embedded in NURS 3103 (Professional Nursing Practice), a 16-week course required of all nursing students, and to lay the groundwork for “contextualized” sections of general education courses in history and English for nursing students. Faculty from literature, philosophy, history, writing, and nursing will participate in the development of this mini-mester and in using an approach called contextualization to develop sections of core courses with readings and assignments designed specifically for nursing students.
