The degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is offered by the College of Nursing through the university's Division of Graduate Studies and Research. The focus of the PhD component is to prepare independent nurse scientists who act in positions of leadership in academic settings, health service institutions, and health policy agencies to advance the empirical and theoretical base of nursing practice through research. Nurses with the PhD are prepared to discover, test, interpret, extend and transmit knowledge in the discipline of nursing and the interdisciplinary areas related to health. Preparation of nurse scientist at the doctoral level can be undertaken after either the BSN degree or the MSN degree. There are full-time and part-time options available.

  • Applicants must submit evidence of an active, unrestricted RN license for the state in which they are practicing nursing. Applicants whose RN license is restricted will be considered, provided the individual shares the conditions of the restriction set by the board of nursing and the college determines the academic program can accommodate those restrictions, if the applicant is admitted. If admitted, it will be necessary to obtain an Ohio RN License (likewise, the distance learning programs will require an RN license from the state in which the applicant currently lives). For more information about obtaining an Ohio RN License, visit nursing.ohio.gov. Accelerated students will be eligible to earn RN licensing after completing Phase II of their program.
