Until now, instructors in the UWindsor Faculty of Nursing have had to leave the city to earn a doctorate in the discipline. That is changing, with the introduction of a new PhD program in nursing which welcomed its first cohort Tuesday at a reception in the Medical Education Building.
“This is going to service Windsor-Essex very well,” said Dale Rajacich, graduate co-ordinator. “In all of Canada, only 411 professors of nursing hold doctorates in nursing, as opposed to some other field. We need to produce more.”
