UT Tyler Nursing PhD

UT Tyler PhD in Nursing


****Students admitted in 2012 will begin coursework in the summer****

BSN to PhD Curriculum

Promising BSN prepared nurses will enroll directly into the PhD program with the opportunity to complete the degree in four years of full-time study, rather than the five required if a MSN and PhD were earned sequentially.

MSN to PhD Curriculum

*It is expected that both the two cognates and the two electives will support a student's program of research. While electives may or may not be a nursing course, cognates must be taken outside of nursing.
