The UWM College of Nursing PhD program prepares doctoral students as scientists who generate knowledge to advance nursing. They are skilled researchers who, using their grounding in the discipline of nursing, conduct inquiry to further clinical, policy, education, and healthcare delivery needs in a variety of settings. Graduates are ready for careers in education, research, practice, and to assume leadership positions. Students work closely with expert faculty, who investigate clinically relevant phenomena using a variety of research methods.
The PhD program is offered both full-time and part-time and is structured so that doctoral nursing courses are offered one day a week to accommodate busy schedules and commuting.
