BS to PhD

Nursing science and practice and student experience merge in the College of Nursing BS to PhD program.

This campus-based, laboratory- and classroom-focused curriculum prepares baccalaureate nurses early in their nursing career as scientists who generate knowledge to advance nursing. This research-intensive program is designed to product scientists more quickly than has been the tradition. Students in this option work closely with faculty mentors to define their success early, and plan and conduct cutting-edge research. Students become skilled researchers who use their grounding in the discipline of nursing to conduct inquiry that furthers clinical, policy, education, and healthcare delivery needs in a variety of settings. PhD in Nursing graduates are ready for careers in education, research, practice, and to assume leadership positions.
