Nursing doctorate approved at SLU

HAMMOND, La. (AP) - Southeastern Louisiana University's proposal to offer a doctorate in nursing has been approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges.

The program - approved in 2011 by the Louisiana Board of Regents - is offered jointly with the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Southeastern began enrolling students this fall and currently has 11 participants.

The program, in which courses are delivered totally over the Internet, accepts nurses who have already earned master's degrees as nurse practitioners or nurse service administrators, explained Ann Carruth, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Under the partnership with ULL, students can take courses at either institution with the degree being awarded by the home university.
