The Graduate Faculty

 

The Programs

The graduate programs emphasize productive scholarship and research in the development of nursing knowledge and the translation of knowledge into practice. Advanced study is in human health and development throughout the life span, and in nursing’s role in providing health services to individuals, families, and communities.

The Ph.D. program, the dual-title Ph.D. program in nursing and bioethics, and the dual-title Ph.D. program in nursing and clinical and translational sciences prepare nurse scientists to provide leadership in nursing education, practice and research. Individualized curricula prepare nursing graduates to assume positions as faculty, researchers and leaders in educational, community, governmental, or institutional settings.

The D.N.P. degree program prepares nurse administrators and advanced practice nurses to assume leadership roles in practice settings in the community, governmental agencies, or healthcare institutions

The M.S. degree program with a major in nursing prepares nurse scientists and clinical scholars who plan to complete a Ph.D. in nursing or dual-title Ph.D. in nursing and bioethics.

The M.S.N. degree in Nursing consists of a base program and six options. The options include: Clinical Nurse Specialist, Family Nurse Practitioner, Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Administrator, and Nurse Educator.

The M.S., M.S.N., and D.N.P. degree programs in Nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The Nurse Practitioner options are designed to help prepare the professional nurse to function in an expanded nursing role providing direct care to specific groups of clients in a variety of health care settings. Since that practice is inherently interdisciplinary in nature, advanced knowledge and research from nursing is combined with knowledge from science, medicine, and related disciplines. The Nurse Practitioner may also function in supervisory, consultative, education, and research roles.

The Clinical Nurse Specialist option prepares advanced practice nurses in Adult Gerontology or Community Health to plan, implement, and evaluate care in a variety of settings. They function in direct care, supervisory, consultative, education, and research roles serving individuals, families, and communities.

The Nurse Administrator option enables the student to acquire advanced knowledge of organizational leadership, health policy, and evidence-based health care delivery. The program is designed to prepare students for leadership and administrative roles in a variety of health care settings.

The Nurse Educator option enables the student to acquire advanced knowledge of evidence-based teaching and learning principles, curriculum development, and evaluative techniques. The program is designed to prepare students for educator roles in a variety of academic and health care settings.

Admission Requirements for M.S., M.S.N., D.N.P., and Ph.D. Programs

Requirements listed here are in addition to requirements stated in the GENERAL INFORMATION section of the Graduate Bulletin. Applicants must apply for admission to the program via the Graduate School application for admission.

  • 6 credits of electives chosen from a list of approved elective courses maintained by the graduate program office

In addition to the minimum 38 credits, up to 8 credits of NURS 834 may be required for M.S.N. to D.N.P. students, depending on the number of practicum hours completed in the student’s M.S.N. program

For both entry options, students are required to participate in 3 intensives offered at the University Park or Hershey Medical Center campus. For full-time students, the first intensive is August of semester I for M.S.N. to D.N.P. and Semester III for B.S. to D.N.P. students. Intensive 2 is the beginning of the subsequent semester, Intensive 3 is at the end of semester II for M.S.N. to D.N.P. and semester IV for B.S. to D.N.P. students.

In addition to course work, all students are required to complete a series of three benchmarks, Candidacy Examination, Comprehensive Examination, and a Final Oral Presentation.

D.N.P. Doctoral Committee Composition: The doctoral committee will consist of the student’s academic adviser, the DNP project course (NURS 835) instructor, and a third member of the graduate faculty, all from the graduate program in Nursing. The academic adviser will be the chair of the committee.

Candidacy Examination: All students must satisfactorily complete the candidacy examination, which is designed to evaluate the student’s past performance and potential for successfully completing the program. Candidacy typically occurs prior to the 2nd intensive, which follows completion of one semester of full-time study for the M.S.N. to D.N.P. student and after three semesters of full-time study for the B.S. to D.N.P. student. Students who fail the examination on the first attempt may repeat it once.

Comprehensive Examination: The Comprehensive Examination marks the student’s progression into their D.N.P. project. This occurs during the 3rd intensive, when students present their D.N.P. project proposal. The Comprehensive Examination needs to be successfully completed prior to the submission of the proposal for human subjects’ review or carrying out the project (if it does not require a review). Students who fail the examination on the first attempt may repeat it once.

Final Oral Presentation: Upon completion of the project, the Final Oral Presentation is scheduled. Students are required to present the project for approval by their doctoral committee. The Associate Dean for Graduate Education will sign off on the final paper, following completion of the paper during NURS 835 and the student’s passing of the oral presentation. Students who fail the examination on the first attempt may repeat it once. The student’s final paper will be made publically available through ScholarSphere.

Ph.D. Degree Requirements

Requirements listed here are in addition to requirements stated in the DEGREE REQUIREMENTS section of the Graduate Bulletin.

Students may enter the program directly from a B.S. in nursing (receiving a M.S. degree en route to the Ph.D.) or following completion of a B.S. in nursing and a Master's degree (either in Nursing or non-Nursing). A dual-title Ph.D. degree in Nursing and Bioethics, a dual-title in Nursing and Clinical and Translational Sciences, and a graduate minor in Nursing are also available.

Students entering with a M.S. degree in Nursing will complete a minimum of 40 credits. The curriculum is composed of 3 components:

  1. Nursing Science Core: minimum of 16 credits, consisting of NURS 580 (3), NURS 581 (3), NURS 582 (3), NURS 583 (3), NURS 587 (1), NURS 590 (3). NURS 596 (3) will also be required of students who are not research assistants on an active faculty research study.
  2. Research Methodology and Statistics: minimum of 15 credits approved by the student’s adviser and/or doctoral committee.
  3. Courses for Individual Specialty: minimum of 9 credits; minimum of 15 credits for a minor.

In addition to course work, all students are required to complete a series of examinations: the Candidacy Examination, the Comprehensive Examination (written and oral components), the Dissertation Proposal Defense, and Final Oral Examination. Students also are required to fulfill a residency requirement. This entails being registered as a full-time student (9 credits minimum) engaged in academic work over the courses of two semesters within a twelve-month period (summer sessions are not included).

Candidacy Examination: All students must satisfactorily complete the candidacy examination, which is designed to confirm the student's mastery of basic nursing theory and research methods. For students entering the doctoral program with a master's degree, the candidacy examination must be taken at the end of the first year of full-time study or the equivalent. Students who fail the examination on the first attempt may repeat it once. Students who fail the examination the second time are terminated from the program.

Comprehensive Examination: The comprehensive examination is designed to test the student's mastery of and ability to synthesize and integrate the theoretical basis for nursing science, advanced research methods, and the chosen specialty area. This examination is taken upon completion of all course work. Students who fail the examination on the first attempt may repeat it once. Students who fail the examination the second time are terminated from the program.

Dissertation: Each student is required to conduct an original and independent research project which, adds to nursing's body of knowledge, and to communicate the research report in a written dissertation. A written dissertation proposal is required and must be approved at a proposal hearing by a majority vote of the student's dissertation committee. A majority vote is also required for approval of the completed written dissertation at the Final Oral Examination (the dissertation defense). The dissertation must be accepted by the doctoral committee, the head of the graduate program, and the Graduate School.

Dual-Title Ph.D. in Bioethics Degree Requirements

Nursing Ph.D. students may pursue additional training in bioethics through the dual-title Ph.D. program in Bioethics. Students must apply and be admitted to the graduate program in Nursing and the Graduate School before they can apply for admission to the dual-title degree program. Admission to the dual-title is determined upon review of all application materials (forwarded from the College of Nursing) by the admissions committee in Bioethics. Students must apply and be admitted to the dual-title degree program in Bioethics prior to taking the candidacy exam.

To qualify for the dual-title degree, students must satisfy the requirements of the Nursing Ph.D. program. In addition, they must satisfy the requirements described below, as established by the Bioethics program committee. Within this framework, final course selection is determined by the student, their Nursing adviser, and their Bioethics program adviser.

The dual-title Ph.D. in Nursing and Bioethics requires a minimum of 2 credits of course work beyond the requirements for the Ph.D. in Nursing (16 credits of the 18 Bioethics credits are part of the current degree requirements in Nursing), as follows:

  • 10 credits: 7 required credits (BIOET 501 (3), BIOET 502 (3), and BIOET 590 (1)), plus at least 3 additional BIOET credits at the 500 level. These credits can be applied to the 9 credits of specialty coursework for the Nursing Ph.D.
  • 8 additional credits from a list of approved electives at the 400 or 500 level, at least two of which must be at the 500 level. Many of the available electives that students may wish to take are 3-credit courses, so 9 additional credits may be a more typical number for most students. The list of elective courses will be maintained by the Director of the Bioethics Graduate Program in consultation with the Bioethics Program Committee. The Nursing Science core constitutes 7 of these elective credits.

Candidacy. In order to be admitted to Ph.D. candidacy in the dual-title degree program, students must meet the Ph.D. candidacy requirements specified by Nursing; a single candidacy examination will be administered that includes assessment of both Nursing and Bioethics. At least one member of the candidacy committee must have a graduate faculty appointment in Bioethics. Because students must first be admitted to a graduate major program of study before they may apply to and be considered for admission into a dual-title graduate degree program, dual-title graduate degree students may require an additional semester to fulfill requirements for both areas of study and, therefore, the candidacy examination may be delayed one semester beyond the normal period allowable.

Comprehensive exam. The doctoral committee of a Nursing and Bioethics dual-title Ph.D. student must include at least one member of the Bioethics Graduate Faculty. Graduate faculty members who hold appointments in both programs may serve in a combined role. If the chair of the committee representing Nursing is not also a member of the Graduate Faculty in Bioethics, the member of the committee representing Bioethics must be appointed as co-chair. The faculty member (or members) affiliated with the Bioethics Program will be responsible for administering a portion of the comprehensive exam that will require the student to demonstrate an understanding of various theoretical and methodological approaches to bioethics, and an ability to apply them to issues and problems (including, where appropriate, practical problems) in their nursing.

Dissertation and Final Oral Examination (the Dissertation Defense). Upon completion of the doctoral dissertation, the candidate must pass a final oral examination (the dissertation defense) to earn the Ph.D. degree. Students enrolled in the dual-title program are required to write and orally defend a dissertation on a topic that is approved in advance by their doctoral committee and reflects their original research and expertise in Nursing and Bioethics. The dissertation must be accepted by the doctoral committee, the head of the graduate program, and the Graduate School.

Dual-Title Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science

Nursing Ph.D. students may pursue additional training in CTS through the dual-title Ph.D. program in CTS. Students must apply and be admitted to the graduate program in Nursing and the Graduate School before they can apply for admission to the dual-title degree program. Admission to the dual-title is determined upon review of all application materials (forwarded from the College of Nursing) by the admissions committee in CTS. Students must apply and be admitted to the dual-title degree program in CTS prior to taking the candidacy exam.

To qualify for the dual-title degree, students must satisfy the requirements of the Nursing Ph.D. program. In addition, they must satisfy the requirements described below, as established by the CTS program committee. Within this framework, final course selection is determined by the student, their Nursing adviser, and their CTS program adviser.

The CTS dual-title requires 26 credits: 18 credits from a list of approved electives in each of the following areas (at least half of which must be at the 500 or 800 level): Statistics (3 cr.), Epidemiology (3 cr.), Bioinformatics (3 cr.), Experimental Design and Interpretation (3 cr.), The Regulatory Environment (3 cr.), and Scientific Communication (3 cr.); 2 credits of CTS 590; and 6 credits of CTS 595 or BMS 571. Of the 18 elective credits required, 12 credits can be double-counted from the required courses for the Ph.D. in Nursing: STAT 500/PHS 520 meets the 3-credit requirement for Statistics, and an additional 9 credits of Individual Specialization Coursework required for Nursing can be selected from the list of CTS approved electives to meet the 3-credit requirements in Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, and The Regulatory Environment. Therefore, dual-title Ph.D. students in Nursing and CTS may require a minimum of 14 credits of additional course work, consisting of approved electives in Experimental Design and Interpretation (3 cr.) and Scientific Communication (3 cr.), 2 credits of CTS 590; and 6 credits of CTS 595 or BMS 571.

Candidacy Examination. In order to be admitted to Ph.D. candidacy in the dual-title degree program, students must meet the Ph.D. candidacy requirements specified by Nursing; a single candidacy examination will be administered that includes assessment of both Nursing and CTS. At least one member of the candidacy committee must have a graduate faculty appointment in CTS. Because students must first be admitted to a graduate major program of study before they may apply to and be considered for admission into a dual-title graduate degree program, dual-title graduate degree students may require an additional semester to fulfill requirements for both areas of study and, therefore, the candidacy examination may be delayed one semester beyond the normal period allowable.

Comprehensive Examination. The doctoral committee of a Nursing and CTS dual-title Ph.D. student must include at least one member of the CTS Graduate Faculty. Graduate faculty members who hold appointments in both programs may serve in a combined role. If the chair of the committee representing Nursing is not also a member of the Graduate Faculty in CTS, the member of the committee representing CTS must be appointed as co-chair. The faculty member (or members) affiliated with the CTS Program will be responsible for administering a portion of the comprehensive exam that will require the student to demonstrate an understanding of various theoretical and methodological approaches to CTS, and an ability to apply them to issues and problems (including, where appropriate, practical problems) in their nursing.

Dissertation and Final Oral Examination (the Dissertation Defense). Upon completion of the doctoral dissertation, the candidate must pass a final oral examination (the dissertation defense) to earn the Ph.D. degree. Students enrolled in the dual-title program are required to write and orally defend a dissertation on a topic that is approved in advance by their doctoral committee and reflects their dissertation research and expertise in Nursing and CTS. The dissertation must be accepted by the doctoral committee, the head of the graduate program, and the Graduate School.
