PhD in Nursing

College of Nursing Doctoral Students

The Villanova University M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing PhD in Nursing program is clearly focused on the preparation of teacher-scholars who will be well-prepared to help alleviate the national nursing shortage by preparing diverse student populations for the delivery of nursing services.

Our program is designed to be flexible in meeting your learning needs. The curriculum is implemented using a fall and spring semester distance learning approach complemented by on-campus summer sessions. A non-distance learning option is available for international students. Whether you are on campus or at home, the College provides you with a personalized experience -- one of the hallmarks of a Villanova Nursing program.
