Over the past hundred years the nursing role has evolved to become high profile professional discipline in which evidence-based practice has become increasingly important both for nurses and for their patients. More recently, this has resulted in a large increase in the number of nurses wishing to increase their knowledge base and studying for doctorates. Until now, however, there has been no text specifically related to doctoral education in nursing or midwifery context - Doctoral Education in Nursing fills that gap. This book takes a truly international approach to examining best practice in doctoral education, to which over 28 international scholars have contributed. It coveris the following topics and more: * what doctoral study in nursing involves * the roles of the student, the supervisor, the awarding institution * the doctoral process * quality monitoring * funding for doctoral education and research * models of international exchange * postdoctoral study. This book will rapidly become an indispensable source of reference for doctoral students and their mentors, wherever they are pursuing their research.
