College of Nursing  > PhD Program


 

Executive Format

Starting with Fall 2017, the PhD Program will adopt 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. Listed below are the in-class dates for the 2017-2018 academic year (courses NGR 7813 and NGR 7814 will follow the standard USF calendar in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018).

  • 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, August 21). 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.
