The PhD is offered 100% online on the Denton Campus. The program has received the prestigious Quality Matters Program Implementation Plan award.
Texas Woman's University College of Nursing is committed to promoting excellent online education. One method to achieve this goal is by implementing the Quality Matters standards for the 100% online PhD program on the Denton campus. We are systematically building and evaluating our courses based on these rigorous, research-supported standards. The Quality Matters standards assure that the online components of these courses promote learner engagement and provide students with all the tools and information they need to be successful learners. More information regarding Quality Matters may be found at www.qmprogram.org.
