This program is the first nursing Ph.D. hybrid program based in Virginia and will place VCU among only a few Mid-Atlantic region-based universities that offer this degree option. The program will include a combination of online courses and traditional classroom experiences to offer students a dynamic, interactive learning experience that will prepare them to become nurse scholars and scientists. This new format is designed to expand the Ph.D. program’s reach to a wider range of highly motivated, independent students who aspire to become scholars, make a significant difference in the field of nursing, and study with nationally recognized nurse scientists who conduct biobehavioral clinical research.
