About the AE-PhD
The Alternate Entry Doctor of Philosophy (AE-PhD) degree is designed for those who hold baccalaureate or graduate degrees in disciplines other than nursing.
The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing AE-PhD program prepares students to become researchers and to assume advanced leadership roles in nursing and health care delivery. A combination of conceptual approaches, challenging interactions in seminar discussions, and work with active researchers produces a stimulating environment for scholarly development.
