Are you deciding upon a doctoral degree in nursing? There are two primary choices: a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Both degrees are supported by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and represent terminal degrees in the field of Nursing. However, there are differences between the two degree programs that prospective students should be aware of before selecting one or the other.
In this linked video, I compare the PhD and DNP in the field of Nursing. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
