Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science

The Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science degree at Rush University is designed to prepare you as a clinical researcher and academic professional. Graduates are trained to generate new knowledge to improve health care outcomes and successfully influence health care systems and policy. The program integrates knowledge from biological, behavioral and clinical sciences and will give you the clinical research skills you’ll need to contribute to the scientific basis of care provided to individuals across the lifespan and in any setting where care is provided.

Students make continual online progress throughout the year and focus on discourse, debate and integration of ideas during annual campus visits. An accelerated BSN to PhD is also offered. Non-nurses who hold a graduate degree in a health-related field will be considered for admission.
