PhD in Nursing
A PhD in Nursing prepares nurses to conduct original research as a nurse scientist. The PhD in Nursing program at UND has a research focus on rural health research.
Nursing faculty believe that development of a scholar requires immersion into research. The goal of nursing research is to inform policy and improve health and the practice of nursing.
In order to actualize the focus of rural health research, students will gain skills in:
- Promoting health behaviors
- Improving networks of information,
systems, and policy
- Attention to the environment
- Closing the gap of translational research
Nurse scientists must be proactive in conducting research in a climate of rapidly changing technology. Accountability and integrity are core values of the UND PhD in Nursing program.
The PhD program is designed with both post-baccalaureate and post-master's entry points. Nurses who have baccalaureate degrees in nursing, but have master's degrees in other fields, may be eligible for advanced placement in the program.
UND Nursing programs ascribe to the College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines Mission Statement found at About CNPD
