Graduate Program

Degrees Offered

General information for each of these degrees is available on this page. General information and requirements are also described on this page; see sidebar links for detailed information specific to each degree.

All students seeking admission to graduate studies must meet the University and College of Nursing requirements set forth in this catalog. Please check the College of Nursing Web site for application information.

Graduate Course Work Without a License to Practice Nursing

Students may take graduate courses without a clinical component even if they are not licensed to practice nursing in the state of New Mexico. This may apply to non-degree students prior to application for admission to the program, individuals awaiting licensure by examination or reciprocity, individuals taking Web courses or individuals from other disciplines taking graduate nursing courses as electives. For any course having a required clinical component, students must be licensed in the state in which they are completing the clinical experience.

Academic Regulations

Graduate students must maintain a grade point average of at least 3.0 to remain in good academic standing. No more than 6 credit hours of course work graded C, C+, or CR may be credited toward the graduate degree. Individual graduate nursing concentrations may impose more rigorous academic standards for their clinical courses. Graduate students who do not earn a passing grade or better (as defined by the concentration) in any graduate nursing course on a second attempt are not allowed to progress. Graduate nursing students receiving less than a passing grade in any two nursing courses are also not allowed to progress in the College of Nursing. Students must wait one year before reapplying to the College of Nursing. Courses taken during the year cannot be counted in the program of studies. Prior to repeating a nursing course, the graduate student’s record is reviewed by an academic advisor. Progress is monitored by an academic advisor.

NOTE: A grade of “B” or better is required for courses taken in non-degree status or at another university in order to be applied to the program of studies.

Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.)

Concentrations: ACNP Adult/Gerontology (ACNP), Community Health, Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Nurse-Midwifery (NM), Nursing Administration, Nursing Education, and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP). Please see the Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) Concentrations section of this Catalog for details on objectives and curriculum requirements, and which concentrations are currently accepting applications.

NOTE: A minimum enrollment is required for a concentration or course to be offered.

The College of Nursing offers the Master of Science in Nursing under either Plan I (with thesis) or Plan II (without thesis). Students must meet the general University requirements for Plan I or Plan II as set forth earlier in this catalog. Plan I requires a minimum of 30 credit hours (including 6 credit hours for thesis) in nursing and related subjects. Under Plan II a minimum of 32 credit hours in nursing and related subjects is required. Under both plans the student must complete the courses required for the chosen concentration. Although some concentrations may require many credit hours beyond the minimum, individual review of records may allow waiver of some of the concentration courses. The minimum credit requirement for Plan I (30) or Plan II (32) must be met by all degree-seeking candidates regardless of any course waivers. Requirements for individual concentrations are available from the concentration coordinators or the College of Nursing Advisement Office. Some concentrations require full-time study. Students should expect a minimum of three hours per week per credit for clinical involvement when taking clinical nursing courses.

The M.S.N. Program Objectives

Once completed, the graduate is prepared to:

  1. Analyze theoretical formulations as a basis for nursing practice, education, and administration.
  2. Apply and/or participate in research about health/illness and the practice of nursing.
  3. Utilize advanced clinical knowledge and skill to promote, maintain, and/or restore optimum wellness to client systems.
  4. Assume leadership roles in nursing practice, education or administration.
  5. Assume responsibility for developing health care policy relative to social, ethical, legal, economic, and political issues that impact on nursing.
  6. Organize and develop collaborative relationships for the improvement of health care on an agency, organizational or legislative level.
  7. Synthesize knowledge from the biophysical, social, and nursing sciences that affects health/illness behavior or client systems as a basis for nursing practice, education, and administration.

Admission Requirements

All students seeking acceptance to the College of Nursing graduate program must meet requirements for admission to the University. See the section in this catalog on the Graduate Program for information on University admission requirements.

Applications are only accepted through an online application process. Check the College of Nursing Web site for current application information. This application is in addition to the application for admission to the University as a graduate student.

Screening for admission to the College is conducted at periodic intervals. All applications, fees, official transcripts, and required documents must be received by the deadline. Students should submit applications early to allow for adequate advisement and processing of applications.

To be considered for acceptance into the graduate program, in nursing, applicants must:

  1. Hold a bachelor’s degree (e.g., B.S.N.) from an accredited (N.L.N.A.C. or C.C.N.E.) nursing program, with an upper-division major in nursing. (Graduates from non-accredited programs and R.N.s with a baccalaureate degree in non-nursing fields are considered on an individual basis.) R.N.s with non-nursing baccalaureate have one opportunity to pass a Community Health test prior to the application deadline. Results of the exam must be received within 5 days of application deadline.
  2. Have a minimum grade point average for baccalaureate work of B (3.0) or better.
  3. Submit the application, required academic records, and documents by deadline dates. See the College of Nursing Web site for further details.
  4. Submit evidence of RN licensure (which must be kept current throughout enrollment in the program). If NCLEX results are pending at the time of application, applicant should indicate this in the personal statement, with copy of RN license submitted within the first term enrolled and prior to any clinical experience. Note: Active RN license is required for the state in which any lab or clinical work (inpatient or community) is performed. An active New Mexico RN license is required for students holding teaching or research assistantships.
  5. An interview may be required for admission.

NOTES: Preference is given to New Mexico residents. (See College of Nursing home page for any updates.)
Physical assessment skills are required for clinical nursing courses. An upper-division statistics course is recommended as a prerequisite to the nursing research course (NURS 503).

Early application is recommended.

Online Master’s Degree Options

Students may choose to obtain a master’s degree from The University of New Mexico College of Nursing by taking all courses on the Web, in the Nursing Administration and Nursing Education concentrations. (Note: the Administration concentration is not currently accepting applications.)

Students discuss with their concentration advisor clinical requirements during course work. For any clinical experience, including the Fieldwork experience, out-of-state students submit the resumes of two to three individuals, master’s prepared in Nursing at a minimum, who have expressed willingness to serve as a preceptor. The student and faculty advisor then decide on the appropriate preceptor and, when necessary, a contract between the College of Nursing and the agency or institution is prepared in advance.

NOTE: As these contracts sometimes take 12-16 weeks to prepare, advance planning is needed.

If site visits are required for any reason for out-of-state students, costs of such visits are borne by the student and not the College of Nursing.

Priority for Enrollment in Web Courses

Only students who have been accepted into the College of Nursing degree programs are allowed to enroll in any of the online core courses. Priority for enrollment in other master’s level Web courses is given to students who have been accepted into the College of Nursing’s degree programs.

Drop Policy for Master’s Level Courses

At the discretion of the faculty teaching the course, students who do not appear in class or log into a Web course, or who have not made prior arrangements with faculty during the first week of the term may be dropped.

Graduate Minor in Nursing

The minor consists of 12 credit hours in non-clinical nursing courses, at least 6 credit hours of which must be core courses. Students may select the remaining 6 credit hours of non-clinical nursing courses with the approval of a College of Nursing faculty advisor.

Post-Master’s Certificate in Nursing

The Post-Master’s Certificate, also known as the Nursing Certificate Program (N.U.R.C.P.), offers students who hold a master’s degree in nursing an opportunity to specialize in an area of nursing not covered in their initial master’s program.

The program of studies consists of specialty courses in the chosen area (at least 15 graduate credit hours) to be designated by the Concentration Advisor or faculty in the specialty area, with approval from the Executive Dean. Course work must be completed within three years and a 3.0 (B) average is required. Contact concentration coordinator for admission and curriculum details.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Nursing

Program Objectives

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program prepares individuals who can assume leadership roles in academia, including the scholarship of teaching, research, and professional service activities. The program focuses on nursing education and knowledge development in the provision of care for multicultural, rural, and underserved populations, and the improvement of nursing care outcomes of individuals, families, and systems, with a special emphasis on women of all ages and children. 

The Ph.D. degree is offered in the College of Nursing; students may follow an individualized plan of study or a concentration in Health Policy.

The College of Nursing has both a master’s entry option and a B.S.N. entry option to the Ph.D. program. The Ph.D. program in nursing is offered under a part-time plan, requiring students to enroll in 6 credit hours each term (Summer, Fall, Spring), with full-time enrollment available most terms.

The Ph.D. Program is delivered online, with attendance at a one-week summer residency in Albuquerque required the first three years of enrollment in the program. After that time, yearly face-to-face meetings with the student’s Committee on Studies are required until completion of the Ph.D. degree. Attendance at the annual Western Institute of Nursing (WIN) Research Conference is required the first two years of enrollment, with attendance at WIN or another research conference approved by the student’s Committee on Studies each year until completion of the Ph.D. degree. Students are responsible for the cost of conference registration and travel to the meetings.

Note: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nursing and Health Policy Fellows (RWJF Nursing Fellows) follow a full-time plan. RWJF Nursing Fellows have additional meeting/conference requirements and face-to-face time in Albuquerque. (Other students in the Health Policy concentration may follow a part-time plan.) Contact the Director, RWJF Nursing & Health Policy Collaborative, for details.

Graduates of the Ph.D. program are able to:

  • Assume the role of the Ph.D.-prepared nurse in teaching, scholarship, leadership, and service.
  • Accept the responsibility for self-directed scholarly development in an ongoing research program, focused on patient care improvement, especially for women, children, and families.
  • Conduct independent, formal inquiry pertaining to health care, reflective caring practice, critical synthesis of existing knowledge, and generation of new knowledge and theory.
  • Practice nursing reflectively, guided by theory, based on best evidence, and integrating creative and critical thinking.
  • Cultivate research expertise relative to a particular population, setting, or human response to health or illness.
  • Evaluate and critique social policy relevant to the organization and delivery of health care.

Students’ dissertation research may fall within the College of Nursing’s identified focus areas of health care needs of underserved and vulnerable populations--especially women, youth, and families--or some area identified by the student. Other College priorities include rural health, disease prevention, and health promotion.

The Ph.D. program is planned for part-time study. The part-time program is expected to take four to five years of part-time study for master’s-prepared applicants, with an additional year for students admitted under the B.S.N. option. Students are required to complete 6 credit hours of prescribed courses each term (Fall, Spring, Summer) until completion of the coursework. Options exist for students who wish to complete the program faster. On acceptance into the program, each student is required to commit to a program of studies.

Admission Requirements

General requirements for the Ph.D. degree are set forth in the University of New Mexico catalog. Specific requirements for the College of Nursing’s Ph.D. program are:

  1. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree or Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) degree from an accredited nursing program (National League for Nursing or Commission on Credentialing of Nursing Education through the American Association of Colleges of Nursing). Students with a B.S.N. and a master’s degree in another field are considered on an individual basis for the master’s entry option.
  2. A grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Preference is given to students with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
  3. A signed statement indicating knowledge of computer literacy skills that include word processing, sending and receiving e-mail communications, and searching Web sites.
  4. Three letters of recommendation from persons who know the applicant professionally and can attest to his/her academic ability. These letters must be submitted through the online application system.
  5. Submission of a writing sample that demonstrates evidence of scholarly ability and the potential for scholarly growth. Examples include, but are not limited to, a thesis, a published or unpublished scholarly paper, or written creative work.
  6. A one-page statement of the applicant’s experiences in the discipline of nursing, which highlights experiences with underserved or vulnerable populations.
  7. A letter of intent that addresses professional and personal goals.
  8. A brief two-to-three page resume that summarizes educational and professional background.
  9. An upper-division or graduate-level statistics course completed within three years of the date of admission is highly recommended.
  10. After initial screening, a select group of priority candidates are interviewed. Interviews for admission are conducted either in person or through interactive video technology.
  11. Health requirements prescribed by the College of Nursing must be in compliance by the date of enrollment.
  12. A valid R.N. license from any U.S. state, territory, or foreign country, which must be kept current throughout the program. Note that students holding teaching or research graduate assistantships must have an active New Mexico R.N. license (or multistate license).
  13. Exceptions to any program admission criterion are considered on an individual basis and are at the discretion of the Ph.D. Committee with recommendation to the Research Team Chair.

Back to Graduate degree list.

B.S.N. Entry to the Ph.D. Program

To be considered for the B.S.N. entry to the Ph.D. program, the applicant must have earned the B.S.N. degree prior to the start of classes for the Ph.D. program and be licensed as a registered nurse within the first term of admission to the Ph.D. program. Students admitted to the Ph.D. program complete 9 credit hours of M.S.N. core (501, 503, 505) and an additional 9 credit hours of graduate coursework focused on substantive nursing content and teaching. These 18 credit hours of bridge coursework are distinct from the credit hours required for the Ph.D., making 69 total credit hours under the B.S.N. to Ph.D. option. The dissertation requirement remains the same, at 18 credit hours (per UNM requirements).

Ph.D. Committee on Studies/Comprehensive Examination Committee

By the end of the fourth term of enrollment, each Ph.D. student is required to assemble a Committee on Studies (COS). The COS guides the student in developing a plan of study that fosters a fundamental knowledge of the major field, both in depth and breadth. The COS typically consists of three College of Nursing faculty with tenure or tenure-track positions and holding regular graduate faculty approval. The COS serves as the student’s Ph.D. comprehensive examination committee.

The Application for Candidacy (AC) must be approved by the COS prior to completion of the Ph.D. comprehensive examination. Once the Ph.D. comprehensive examination is passed and the Dean of Graduate Studies approves the AC, the student is advanced to doctoral candidacy and must enroll in a minimum of 6 credit hours of dissertation (i.e., NURS 699) each term until the dissertation is completed.

Dissertation Committee

The Dissertation Committee typically includes the members of the COS. (See requirements stated earlier in the catalog for steps in appointment of the committee.) One of the members of the COS typically serves as the Dissertation Committee Chair. In addition to the Chair and the two other members of the COS, the Dissertation Committee must include:

  1. A required external member who holds a tenure or tenure-track appointment outside the student’s unit/department. This member may be from The University of New Mexico (must have regular graduate faculty approval) or from another accredited institution (must be approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies).
  2. Note: An optional fifth member of the committee may be a non-faculty expert in the student’s major research area or a doctorally prepared member of the College of Nursing Clinical Educator Track with regular graduate approval.

Transfer of Courses

A limited number of courses may be considered for transfer to The University of New Mexico. To be transferable, course work must be no more than five years old at the time of application for candidacy, and the transfer of credit hours must be approved by the student’s Committee on Studies.
