The Honors College is pleased to offer a special opportunity for those students intending to graduate in Spring 2013 or Summer 2013 as part of IDH 5975. The primary goal of the course is to assist students in the preparation of a completed prospectus, including a thesis director, by October 12, 2012. The course is open to all students in their first semester of thesis work (Fall 2012), with a particular emphasis on students who are not yet sure of the the direction of their work or how to develop a prospectus.
The course will have limited enrollment on a first-come, first-served basis. It will meet on Friday mornings for 1 1/2 hour sessions through October 19, 2012 and will be led by two senior professors experienced in mentoring Honors Thesis students. One hundred percent of students who moved through an experimental model of this program and were surveyed recommended the course as a "must."

What: Senior Honors College student seeking fellow Honors College student with film expirence who would be interested in helping to make a documentary about the emergence of nurse practitioners as primary care providers and their barriers to practice in Florida.
Why: Prescriptive authority for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNP's) in Florida is severly limited. Florida is one of only two states that prohibits ARNP's from prescribing controlled substances. Though this is not widely known, this legislation has had devastating effects on the healthcare of Florida's citizens, primarily the indigent. This needs to change. My goal with this documentary is to educate the public about this injustice.
