The University of Texas at Tyler College of Nursing has admitted 12 new nursing doctoral students, Dr. Linda Klotz, College of Nursing and Health Sciences dean, announced.
Marissa Smolarski of Mission is among the 2010 fall cohort that joins 40 students currently enrolled in the program.
The Ph.D. in nursing program, with a focus on “Health in Communities within the Context of Culture,” is designed to develop nurse scientists who will improve patient outcomes through research, policy and education, according to Dr. Barbara Haas, doctoral program director.
“Offered entirely online, the Ph.D. program makes doctoral education available to nurses who would not otherwise have access to an advanced degree. Students come from across the country to attend a one-week orientation prior to beginning coursework,” she said.
