The independent research conducted by students in the Doctoral Program in Nursing Science assists in the development of nursing science and prepares them to be young researchers in the field of nursing science.
As a result of the comprehensive, in-depth training, students in this program are capable of formulating, independently planning and carrying out their own research projects on current topics in nursing science. Their findings help to expand the body of knowledge in this discipline.
Students are able to critically analyze, evaluate and advance current scientific theories and new concepts in nursing science. They become young nursing practitioners who contribute to the development of nursing science in both university and non-university settings.
The doctoral program is offered in cooperation with Charité Berlin and Maastricht University.
