PhD in Nursing Admission criteria


Students entering the MS-PhD program are expected to have successfully completed a master’s level course in nursing theory, nursing research, and a basic statistics course before enrolling in the nursing PhD sequence. Students who are interested in a BS to PhD option must have completed a baccalaureate degree in nursing, including undergraduate level courses in research and statistics.


Applicants are strongly urged to browse the Nursing Science directory, locate a faculty member whose program of research most closely matches their own research interests and contact them prior to application.

The deadline for applications is April 1, but we will evaluate applications on a rolling basis.

View the requirements on the Graduate and Professional Programs webpage.
