Bryan College of Health Sciences is pleased to announce that it will offer the program of studies leading to an Education Doctorate (Ed.D.) with an emphasis in Nursing Education beginning with the spring semester of 2016.
The Education Doctorate with an emphasis in Nursing Education degree at Bryan College of Health Sciences is one of only eight such programs in the United States and is the first of its kind to be offered in the Midwest.

The program format includes face-to-face, classroom and online interaction, with nearly 75 percent of the coursework being completed online.
“We are pleased to be able to support the increasing need for nursing educators, who in turn will help meet the critical need for more nurses throughout our country,” said Marilyn Moore, president of the Bryan College of Health Sciences. “As many nursing faculty members approach retirement and accreditation standards require an increasing number of doctoral prepared educators, this program will meet the need for highly educated faculty members in nursing colleges throughout the Midwest.”
