The College of Nursing offers two doctoral-level degrees: the PhD and the DNP.

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
The PhD program at the College of Nursing prepares nurse scientists and scholars who are skilled researchers and will advance the knowledge of the discipline. Mentoring focuses on the development of skills in original research and the completion of a dissertation. Both full-time and part-time study is available. There are various entry options into the PhD program, with program length and requirements dependent upon status at admission. Students can apply to the PhD program if they have completed a bachelor's or master's in nursing. The Ohio State University College of Nursing students entering the college through the Graduate Entry option can apply for admission into the PhD program during the fall quarter of their second year, but can declare a research interest when they submit the Graduate Entry application.

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
The DNP program enhances the preparation of leaders for the nursing profession in direct patient care, the mentorship of others in nursing practice and clinical education, nursing administration, or the crafting of health policy. Through customized learning opportunities in course work, electives, and the clinical immersion experiences, students enhance their nursing expertise. The final project provides the basis for developing competence in the translation of research into practice, education, or policy. Full-time students with a master’s in nursing complete the DNP program in two years, with part-time students ideally finishing study in three years.
