Program Description:

The Doctor of Philosophy program in nursing is designed to prepare scholars and researchers capable of advancing nursing practice and education. Three focus areas, health promotion, human response, and healing, characterize the conceptual base of the program and define the program's scope. These three focus areas provide the structure to develop knowledge that will extend the understanding of the promotion of physical, psychological, and social well-being. They also are applied within the context of prevention and the maintenance or restoration of health.
