Learn More about Doctorate Degrees in Nursing

There are two main types of doctoral degrees in nursing: a PhD in Nursing and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. These two types of programs can be quite different, so it is important that you understand which one will best help you meet your goals. The PhD tends to be more focused on research and preparing you as nursing faculty, whereas the Doctor of Nursing Practice is focused on preparing you for advanced clinical practice.

The vast majority of these programs require you to be a licensed Registered Nurse (RN) in order to be admitted, however there are a couple of programs that accept those who are not yet RNs. These are called Direct Entry DNP/PhD programs, and offer a route for non-nurses to move directly into doctoral study.

Some PhD and DNP programs can take as little as 18 months to complete, depending on whether you enter as a Bachelor's or Master's prepared nurse, and whether you attend classes part-time or full-time. As you can see below, there are also a number of online doctorate nursing programs, which may make earning your advanced degree more convenient if you plan to continue working while you attend school.

Most PhD in Nursing programs follow a similar curriculum, which includes core courses that expand your theoretical nursing knowledge, research and statistics courses, electives that focus on your specific interests or research priorities, and a dissertation. If you choose to enroll in a Doctor of Nursing Practice program, you will likely be required to complete several advanced clinical rotations, based on the patient population or disease process you plan to specialize in.

Be sure to check with the schools listed on our site for scholarship and grant opportunities, as well a fellowship programs that can help cover both academic and living expenses in some cases. You may also want to explore HRSA funding, as well as federal student aid. Don't let finances prevent you from following your dreams to become a doctorally prepared nurse, as there are many different organizations that are dedicated to helping you achieve your educational goals.


A Note about Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Degrees and Nurse Practitioners


The DNP role was formally created in 2004, by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). There are a couple of useful background documents on their website: FAQs Concerning the DNP, and The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice that you may want to read if you plan to go this route.

The AACN's basic vision is that the DNP will replace Master's in Nursing programs when it comes to preparing advanced practice nurses, including Nurse Practitioners. MSN programs will continue to exist, but in the future they may be more generalist-focused, whereas the DNP will provide the specific training required for roles as a Nurse Practitioner, CNS, CRNA, and other advanced nursing clinician roles.

The target date for this transition is 2015, but current advanced practice nurses with Master's degrees may not be required to go back and get a DNP - they will continue to be allowed to practice. The requirement will only apply to RNs who are trying to become advanced practice nurses (APRNs) in 2015 and beyond. This transition may heavily influence how you go about selecting a school and a program, so it is important to keep this in mind as you undertake your advanced nursing education.

In order to ensure you enroll in the right degree program, take some time to research the doctorate nursing schools in your area, to see where they are currently at in the transition process. You can also reach out directly to the nursing schools you see on this page, or contact our nurse editor for more information.
