B.S.N. to Ph.D.
The Ph.D. in Nursing is offered as a distance learning program. Admission and enrollment in distance learning programs depend on the state laws where the student resides.
Georgia is a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). This is an agreement among member states that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings of distance learning.
Individuals who are interested in the Ph.D. and who reside outside the state of Georgia should view this page for more information about state authorization or exemption for students applying from your state.
Mercer University may not be able to offer the Ph.D. to students who reside in some states.
