PhD: Advancing the profession through research

The PhD program at the MSU College of Nursing is for those nurses who wish to become scientists while advancing their career — and the profession — through research and evidence-based nursing practice.

The college offers full- and part-time programs and is highly customizable to the student's area of research interest.

The college currently focuses on two areas of research:

  • Symptom science development for self-management of chronic conditions; and
  • Health promotion and risk reduction
