Courses and Resources
The UR School of Nursing offers undergraduate and graduate courses in academic writing designed for the discipline-specific needs of nursing students. These courses help our nurses learn the foundational thinking and writing skills necessary to effectively communicate, contribute, and succeed within their profession.
This three-credit course is required for students in the RN-BS program. NSG 301 can also be taken as a writing elective. This course is designed to help students clarify their thinking and writing processes to become more effective communicators in the workplace and academia. It is open for non-matriculated students and is an excellent foundational course for anyone thinking about pursuing an advanced degree and needing to refresh their academic skills.
This one-credit course is required for all master’s students. It can be taken prior to matriculation and is highly recommended as a prerequisite for all other graduate courses. The purpose of this course is to help graduate students gain proficiency in academic writing, scholarly thinking, and the art of revising.
