The interdisciplinary Nursing PhD Program is based upon the belief that doctoral preparation is best accomplished when the faculty-student relationship is a partnership of inquiry.
The program is designed to offer challenging learning opportunities to develop each student as a scientist and scholar. The PhD program requirements are the same whether you choose the Online Nursing PhD option or the International Residential Nursing PhD option.
