As you work toward your Ph.D. in nursing at Georgia State, you will be setting yourself apart as a nurse scholar and a leader in research, practice and education. You also are becoming part of the solution for the national shortage of nurse researchers and educators.
A doctorate designed for today’s busy healthcare professionals at all career stages:
- The program is designed for master’s and bachelor’s prepared nurses. We also invite D.N.P.-prepared nurses to apply to the Ph.D. program. (For D.N.P.-prepared nurses, course credit may be given for previous coursework.)
- The Ph.D. program is available for full-time and part-time study and with coursework primarily online.
- Students attend a few required on-campus sessions: just two days in the fall and spring semesters.
- The web-based classes are a combination of real-time (synchronous or live) and on-demand (asynchronous) classes.
Our graduates enjoy successful careers and can be found in roles such as:
- Research, clinical and administrative faculty positions in nursing schools nationwide
- Leadership and executive positions in corporate hospital systems and healthcare organizations
- Public health positions with government agencies
