Doctoral preparation is the beginning of a life of inquiry -- graduates become scientists who conduct research in nursing and who contribute to the development of knowledge in our profession. They answer the "why" and "how" questions and focus their careers as academic faculty or clinical researcher. Through these positions, they continue to generate the knowledge base of the discipline.
If you have clinical experience which leads you to ask those "why" and "how" questions, it's likely that we have faculty who would enjoy helping you find answers. Review our faculty research activities and faculty profiles to see the areas of research they have explored, and then take a look at the courses we offer for doctoral study. We invite your interest.
