It is estimated, that of the nearly 2.7 million registered nurses licensed in the United States today, fewer than 10 percent have an advanced degree. Fewer than one percent of nurses have a doctoral degree. The Nursing programme is offered by The Ohio State University. 



You have the opportunity to contribute to the profession of nursing as a scientist and scholar during an exciting time in the history of the profession, and a time of great need for your expertise. The Nursing programme is offered by The Ohio State University. 

Nurses provide care and services to improve the health of individuals and populations. The PhD program in the College of Nursing supports this goal by preparing nurse scientists who can advance the knowledge base for nursing practice through research and scholarly activities.

The focus of the PhD program at the College of Nursing is the examination of the broad determinants of health and disease in individuals, families and communities, with the intent to develop and test interventions to improve health. Consistent with the biopsychosocial focus of our discipline and growing national emphasis on interdisciplinary research and translational health science, special attention is given to the interactions among mind, body and environments through interdisciplinary research studies.
