These courses are required for all students enrolled in the PhD in Nursing Science program.  Additional courses will be taken to fulfill each individual student's Program of Study and PhD program requirements.

The PhDCC recommends that all PhD core courses be numerically graded, except for NURS 587 Role Transition Seminar and NURS 595 Synthesis of Nursing Science, which are graded Credit/No Credit.
