Plan of Study

Nursing science is one of the most exciting fields of study today. As a PhD student at the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies you will work with leading nurse scientists to begin to develop a program of research in one of the following areas: Health Disparities-Minority Health, HIV/AIDS; Maternal-Child, Family Health; and Patient Safety, Infectious Diseases.

Miami’s multi-ethnic population base and the school’s close affiliation with the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, the University of Miami Hospital, and the Jackson Health System offer unique opportunities for collaborative research. 

The School offers two options leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD) in Nursing, the 41-credit hour MSN to PhD Program and the 62-credit BSN to PhD Program.
