College of Nursing  > PhD Program


 

Executive Format

Starting with Fall 2017, the PhD Program has adopted an executive format as follows:

  • Coursework: Intensive on-campus experiences combined with web-based and distance activities.

  • Meeting dates: Classes meet on campus two-three times per semester.

  • Orientation: The first hour of the first meeting date every semester will serve as the PhD program orientation for new and returning students (e.g. 8 am, January 8). Individual course meeting times will be distributed at orientation.

Note: Students enrolled in Scientific Inquiry Forum (NGR 7930) are expected to attend class every Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm either in person or via the faculty-designated web application.
