What distinguishes the Ph.D, the ND, and the DNSc from one another? What does each prepare someone for? Similar number of credit hours required? Similar types of courses? Dissertation required? There's a list of all the schools that offer these programs at http://www.allnursingschools.com
At least 2 of the schools allow non-nurses to apply to their ND programs. So there you go, another point of entry to the nursing profession. But I don't want to talk about that right now, I only want to know what the Ph.D/ND/DNSc are all about. According to the brief descriptions of the various schools' doctorate programs on the website, they all sound pretty much alike. Thanks to anyone who has infomation.
