The Council on Academic Affairs will vote on revising the nursing major and adding new courses to it at its meeting 2 p.m. Thursday in room 4440 of the Booth Library.
It will also vote on revising the rural studies and health communication minor.
The nursing major is being revised to streamline its admission process to match the university’s and also add interdisciplinary courses.
The new courses are in Public Health Nursing, Leadership and Management in Nursing and Pharmacogenomics in Nursing Practice.
Other new courses to be voted on include Evolutionary Medicine in biological sciences.
Correction: The nursing major has always been an RN to BS program. The changes being made will not affect that. The News regrets the error.
