PhD Plan of Study


The Ph.D. in Nursing Science program offers two program plans: Full-time and Part-time. Both programs require 52 semester hours of course work and 9 semester hours of dissertation.

We encourage students to select the appropriate program of study after careful self-assessment of individual supports and barriers to attending school.  We also recommend talking to current students with similar family and employment responsibilities.  New students are able to make these peer and faculty connections at the summer residency before the school year begins in fall.
