Nursing - PhD - Border Health Issues and Disparities Emphasis

Department Website schoolofnursing.nmsu.edu

The New Mexico State University (NMSU) PhD in Nursing with an emphasis on border health issues and disparities is designed to prepare individuals who can assume leadership roles in academia, including the scholarship of teaching, research, and professional service. It is a direct response to the regional and national nursing faculty shortage. It is expected that graduates will facilitate development of new knowledge and nursing education that is directed at improving nursing care outcomes for individuals, families, communities, and systems in populations with health disparities. Students come to campus once a year for a one week period plus attend a national nursing research conference each year with all other course work completed online.
