Overview: Our online PhD program will prepare you for a career as a nurse scientist, conducting cutting-edge research in nursing education, health systems, or clinical science to enhance the care of individuals and families across the lifespan. First you will complete your BSN to PhD bridge coursework then begin your PhD coursework. While the entire program is conducted online or via video conferencing technology, there is an on-campus intensive session, usually held for a week or two at the start of each summer. You will have the opportunity to interact with other PhD students and with faculty, attend professional development sessions, meet with faculty mentors, and network during a variety of informal receptions. As a PhD student, you are linked with faculty researchers who provide supportive mentoring throughout your entire PhD program. You can choose to work with faculty experts in clinical nursing science or health systems.
