Online Nursing Doctorates

There are several doctorates in nursing, which include the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (PhD) degree, the Doctor of Nursing Science (DNSc) degree, and the Nursing Doctorate (ND) degree.

Each of these degrees is geared toward advancing a nurse’s career and knowledge to a significant degree. Fewer and fewer nurses are pursuing doctoral degrees and this can be seen through the health care provided by nurses.

In order to keep the professional level and knowledge of nurses high, in all nursing environments, advanced studies in the field of nursing needs to be enforced. Nursing theory, concepts, teaching, and research are involved in these various doctoral nursing programs that will assist nurses in perfecting their nursing skills.
