Doctoral Degree

There is currently a high demand for nurses with doctoral degrees, and the need isn't expected to decrease in the near future. A PhD in nursing will prepare you to run research projects, have your own practice, or manage other nurses. It will take you four to six years of intensive coursework and internships. Before you start on your doctoral program, it is important to find a faculty mentor and decide what area you would like to specialize in, whether it be research, pediatrics, or any other medical specialty.
