Focus:
Health Equity
 

This post-master's PhD degree in Nursing prepares nurse scientists to conduct research that supports health equity by addressing the health of diverse, urban individuals; families; and communities.

This mission advances the Hunter College Center for Nursing Research's goal of urban health equity. Our faculty are experts in health promotion, community-engaged research, and disease prevention.

Based on an apprenticeship model of research, the doctoral program combines rigorous coursework and a residency with experienced research mentors. Graduates are well-equipped with the research skills needed to obtain academic positions and to become nurse scientists in health care institutions.

 

Program Features

  • 50-credit program can be completed in 3 years
  • Courses are offered on a part-time plan (2-3 courses per term, including winter intersession and summer session), all scheduled on the same day. This allows for a rich scholarly experience that also works well for many working professionals.
  • All students complete a 360-hour research residency with an individual research mentor during the first 2 years of the program.
  • Students have the option of taking two courses in nursing education, including a teaching residency.
  • All courses are taught by Hunter College nursing faculty with active programs of research, together with colleagues from other CUNY departments and the Weill-Cornell Clinical and Translational Science Center. Our highly-qualified faculty also serve as dedicated and exemplary research mentors for doctoral students.
