Online PhD in Nursing

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.

Although this program is nearly identical to the on-campus PhD program there are minor differences. Students are admitted to the online option as a cohort and must progress consistently with the scheduled course offerings. Online courses are offered every two years and must be taken in sequence.
