The PhD in Nursing program is designed to be a research-intensive experience. Students will join faculty to tackle the root cause of health problems identified as the "social determinants of health." Their research will focus on primary health care, a people-centered approach to health that makes prevention as important as the cure. Program graduates develop new nursing science, serve as leaders of the profession, and educate the next generation of nurses.
The PhD in Nursing program prepares graduates as nurse scientists for careers in:
Academic tenure-track faculty
