"The online Ph.D. program at the KU School of Nursing offers great flexibility for students who are highly motivated and committed to a career in nursing research. The faculty has strong research backgrounds, expertise and a dedication to the success of students. I was well prepared to assume the roles of a nursing researcher and educator."
