The School of Nursing and School of Graduate Studies partners to offer a dual degree for the Master of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Philosophy (Field of Study: Nursing) degrees.
The Master of Science in Nursing / PhD combined degree program provides the opportunity for students with a BSN or MN degree to pursue the PhD while earning an MSN degree in a selected major or clinical specialty along the way. Application involves a dual submission process and applicants must be accepted into both programs. Students select an MSN major of clinical specialty and take MSN and PhD courses concurrently. For the combined MSN/PhD program, up to 8 credits of course overlap are allowed depending on the selected clinical major.
