PhD or DNP? Which one is right for me?
Noon to 1 p.m. PDT Aug. 25

During this informative webinar, hosted by the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, we’ll discuss the two doctoral nursing degrees — the Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree (DNP) and Doctor of Philosophy Degree (PhD). Each degree prepares nurses for unique nursing leadership positions. You’ll hear from our DNP and PhD program directors who will explain the differences about these degree programs and what you might consider as you explore these two career paths.

You’ll learn about:
• Curriculum components and what it takes to complete each degree
• Career paths for each degree
• How the two degrees complement each other
• UC Davis School of Nursing DNP and PhD options

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions with a Question-and-Answer feature.
