PhD Program

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The DUSON Ph.D. Program will prepare nurse scientists to assume roles primarily in academic and research settings. Our approach is to admit a small number of highly qualified applicants and work with them in a series of mentored experiences, supported by formal course work, to
(a) ensure socialization to the role of research scientist;
(b) ensure significant knowledge and skill acquisition for launching a successful program of research post doctorate; and
(c) to prepare for an entry level teaching role in an academic setting.
