Program Description:

As a student in the PhD in Nursing program you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to identify and examine health problems that impact urban and underserved populations. Upon graduation, you will be able to assume the role of researcher, educator and scholar in a school of nursing, clinical agency, research center, or other setting. You will find yourself providing leadership for the profession and developing new knowledge that will influence nursing practice and improve health outcomes for all individuals.

You will study with nursing faculty whose research programs address a broad spectrum of clinical nursing questions and urban healthcare problems. Collectively, the faculty has expertise in a variety of research methods and a range of research interests, including health issues of women, children and families, depression, cardiovascular disease, substance abuse and perinatal injury.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to study with faculty from other Northeastern departments and research centers and with others in Boston's nursing community whose work addresses clinical problems with urban and underserved populations. Our close ties with the University's Institute on Urban Health Research and School of Social Science, Urban Affairs and Public Policy, as well as with the Center for Community Health Education, Research and Service and other organizations provide opportunities to work across disciplines and access populations and sites for your dissertation.
