The central purpose of the Ph.D. program in nursing is to prepare nurse-scientists as teacher/scholars with an emphasis on knowledge development related to vulnerable populations. Graduates of this program will advance nursing and health care through teaching, research and leadership.
The Ph.D. program includes course work in nursing science, research and statistics, teaching, cognates, and a dissertation. The program may be completed on a full- or part-time basis. Several sources of financial assistance, including scholarships, are available.
Students will be able to:
Postbaccalaureate entry Ph.D. program admission requirements
Post-M.S.N. entry Ph.D. program admission requirements
Applicants may be denied admission to the Ph.D. program because of space constraints. An applicant must be licensed as a professional nurse. An RN with a bachelor’s degree in another field, a direct-entry student or a master’s student may apply to the Ph.D. program. Programs of study may vary in length and are tailored according to previous course work.
