Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science | Introduction

The Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing offers an accelerated online Ph.D. program with a focus of study on vulnerable populations.

The Ph.D. in Nursing Science program is designed to fast track students to graduation in as little as three years of full-time study or four years of part-time study. Typical career goals of our graduates include university faculty, researchers, and clinical and organizational leaders.  Non-nurses with health-related experience or interests may also benefit from this terminal degree, and should seek advice from the program director about eligibility.
