Field of Study: Nursing Science (MS, PhD)
Description The Queen’s School of Nursing offers a challenging and innovative PhD program to prepare you with the skills required to expand knowledge related to clinical, theoretical and health system issues. Situated in an academic environment that embodies scholarship, you will be well-prepared for a career as a leader in research and scholarship, clinical practice or health care administration. Our PhD program consists of course work, a comprehensive examination, and a thesis. The thesis requires independent, original research and makes up at least two-thirds of the time normally required for the program. You will be taught primarily in small graduate seminars, in which you will engage in a lively, critical examination of philosophy, policy and research, and delve into your own research. Nurtured by close mentoring relationships with faculty supervisors, the Queen’s model is to ensure graduate students present and publish their research, and normally complete their program in 4 years.
