Doctoral Degrees

A doctoral degree is a terminal degree. It can be a DNP, PhD or EdD or another discipline. Doctorate curricula build on traditional master's programs by providing education in evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and systems leadership, among other key areas. Has your scope of practice changed? This is the place to discuss programs, schools and the effect a doctoral degree has on your nursing practice.
