MSN to PhD

The MSN to PhD program is a curriculum option for students with a master’s degree to enter directly into PhD study.

An applicant whose prior academic experience and proposed research focus is congruent with the research focal areas of the College of Nursing will be given priority. This degree program is not for students seeking certification in advanced practice nursing. The core curriculum and supporting courses may be completed in four sequential semesters of full-time enrollment. The doctoral curriculum is three years in length for full-time students.
