Ph.D. in Nursing Education

The primary mission of the UNC Ph.D. in Nursing Education online program is to prepare nurse educators.  The doctoral program prepares nurses to contribute to developing leadership in nursing education, the scholarship of teaching, and research in the discipline. Education at the doctoral level builds upon and extends content acquired at the baccalaureate and masters’ levels to emphasize theory development, learning strategies, and research skills.  The program is committed to increasing the number of doctoral prepared nurse educators.  Graduates of the Ph.D. program would be qualified to fill nursing faculty positions in educational institutions and health care agencies.
