CON Honor Council

The Honor Council of the College of Nursing has as its purpose to infuse the highest standards of character while providing a model for professional behaviors.  As with The University as a whole, the College of Nursing (CON) asks that its students develop academically and morally while being supported by the advice, constructive criticism, enthusiasm, and example of peers, faculty and mentors.  As such, it is the responsibility of each College of Nursing Student to read and adhere to MUSC’s Honor Code.

The CON Honor Council consists of the following members: 2 students from RN-BSN cohort, 2 students from aBSN fall cohort, 2 students from aBSN spring cohort, 1 MSN student, 3 DNP students, and 2 PhD students. These individuals have the job of educating their peers on the purpose and scope of the MUSC Honor Code. Each appointed representative must be familiar with and abide by the Honor Code, such that they may serve as both an example and a resource for their peers on the spirit and letter of the Honor Code. Additionally, honor council members periodically must serve as investigators of alleged infractions, as well as participate in hearings with the utmost impartiality and confidentiality.

Students will be appointed by the Undergraduate, Graduate, or PhD Program Committees. Persons interested in serving on the CON Honor Council may let the Program Director know. Students are appointed to serve throughout their curriculum. If a student is unable to complete the term, another appointment will be made by the appropriate Program Committee.
