PhD Student Outcomes

We anticipate that the students of the doctoral program will continue in their careers with academic achievement characterized by reflective analysis of their own learning and obtain mentors whose characteristics they wish to emulate, such as effective researchers and motivating teachers.

We expect the graduate to:

  • generate knowledge that is inventive and rigorously tested within a selected area of nursing science;
  • have multiple perspectives of knowing and also acknowledge multidisciplinary contributions to knowledge generation;
  • be informed by social, cultural and political issues related to their area of scholarship;
  • provide leadership in nursing as well as various professional and public groups;
  • test, generate and extend knowledge relevant to nursing practice within a variety of clinical settings.
