Many decide to continue research and nursing scholarship by applying for PhD degree programs.

PhD in Nursing:

This program is for students who have already completed master degrees in nursing. These students begin by declaring individual areas of concentration.

Students work closely with faculty members, who direct them toward completion of their PhD dissertations, which must be defended before an academic panel. Students who complete this program take leadership and high-level administrative positions in the nursing profession. They may write or influence policy. They may also continue research and take faculty positions in nursing colleges.
