Recently, the head of the PRWR department, Dr. Bonk, revised the Minor in Professional Writing as well as the Certificate in Healthcare Writing (the certificate is limited to Nursing students to ensure a background in science, although other students will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

PRWR 370 Writing in the Sciences, had a presentation component in Spring 2013, when the class was previously offered. But writing within the sciences does not necessarily mean it is closed just for science majors, or, what seems to be becoming popular recently, nursing majors.
At the Writing in the Sciences symposium this past Spring, the students had a presentation component of the course, which showed off all of the work that they did throughout the semester. Set up in the writing center on campus, faculty, students, and parents took a gander at what the students had been up to. Topics ranging from multicultural psychology to breast cancer to astronomy, the “science” theme gave much diversity.
“Being able to explain all the work I had done throughout the semester was really nice. Not only did my professor see it, but other faculty and my parents could see it as well; my poster board that I had worked on into the wee hours of the night kind of reminded me of a science fair feel, but explaining in my own words what I had researched–I was proud of my work.” –Chara Kramer, ’14
