In addition to studying at the new state-of-the-art Anschutz Medical Campus and attending one of the nation’s highest ranked nursing programs, the College of Nursing PhD students will work with nationally and internationally recognized faculty. Renowned for mentoring and expertise in research and scholarship, the nursing faculty are dedicated to the pursuit of expanding nursing knowledge through empirical research and providing a high level of education.
Our distinguished faculty has made significant contributions to school-based health care and nursing informatics, as well as research into pain management, rural health and pediatric nursing. As we look to the future, we are advancing the development of additional research strengths in public health, health care of children, those with chronic illness and clinical health care. Our strong faculty practices with children, pregnant women and their families, adults and elders allow our students to combine world-class research with real-world education.
As a PhD student, your research focus will align with the research conducted by one of our faculty scholars. For more information about our renowned faculty and research interests, visit and review the College of Nursing faculty pages and bios.
