Yale School of Nursing Launches Ph.D. Program

This fall Yale School of Nursing (YSN) will begin accepting its first class of Ph.D. students, who will be offered comprehensive tuition funding and stipends.

The full-time program approved recently by the Yale University Faculty of Arts and Sciences will provide students with mentored teaching and research opportunities enhanced through collaborative work with other Yale graduate and professional schools.

“This is a major accomplishment for YSN and for Yale,” said Dean Margaret Grey. “It will enable us to continue to recruit the best and the brightest students to Yale and to train the next generation of nurse scientists.”

The U.S. Department of Education recently awarded YSN a three-year grant to support the recruitment and training of outstanding applicants for the Ph.D. program. There will be a focus on student diversity and inclusion of under-represented groups. The funds also will be directed to the development of curricula within the Ph.D. program for clinical research or health systems and policy research.

“Our graduates will be prepared to assume academic positions and leadership roles in schools of nursing nationally and around the world,” Grey said.

Interested candidates should email Marjorie Funk, director of the YSN Doctoral Program, at Marjorie.funk@yale.edu
