Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing

The PhD Program in Nursing is designed to prepare nurse scholars to advance the science, art, and practice of the discipline. Doctoral preparation in Nursing promotes knowledge development, organization, and application of theory and evidence-based scholarly nursing practice. Our collaborative PhD program prepares nurses to develop and utilize knowledge in many roles, including Researcher, Educator, Administrator, Clinician Health care policy maker. 

PhD students’ research will fall alongside one or more faculty member’s expertise. The intent is for the PhD program to be distance accessible. Presently, the curriculum of the PhD program has courses available in traditional classroom, online, and IP video.
