Doctoral Nursing Studies Overview

Advance your career with a doctoral degree program

The Department of Nursing's doctoral-degree program will further your education and advance your career in the healthcare industry.

Our graduates are responsible, ethical, and accountable members of the nursing profession, committed to excellence in practice, communication, innovation, research, and continuing education.

Students taking an online course with a clinical component or practicum CANNOT do the clinical or practicum portion of the course within the state of Maryland at this time. If you are a licensed Registered Nurse (R.N.) you may complete a clinical or practicum in Virginia and Delaware which share in a Nurse Compact for Licensure with Maryland. Students who reside in Maryland may continue to take online courses at Drexel University, but they must do the clinical portion of the course in another state. If you have already made arrangements to do clinical in Maryland, please contact your Academic Advisor or Director of Clinical Education immediately to help you find a new clinical site. Drexel University is in the process of applying for a Certificate for Approval to Operate in Maryland.
