Envisioning and equipping the next generation of nursing.

Provincially, nationally, and globally, there is a deepening shortage of doctorally prepared nursing faculty. TWU’s School of Nursing is offering a groundbreaking PhD in Nursing program designed for nurses who are in or who want to be in academic positions and those who work in or desire to work in health care organizations.

The PhD in Nursing program actively engages a community of nurse scholars who deepen their own nursing knowledge, contribute to new nursing knowledge, and lead in academic and health-care contexts.

Rooted in the Christian ethos of TWU, students will have opportunity to develop a values-based approach to higher education, leadership, and research. The flexible and accessible online approach is tailored for learners who are working in educational institutions or health-care organizations. The program features; annual summer residences, internships in education, policy, or research, graduate seminars, and completion of a comprehensive dissertation
