The journey of a PhD in Nursing is certainly unique due to the fact there is an element of direct work experience required before moving onto graduate education. Dr. Linda Franck did not plan to become a nurse as she started college and she certainly wasn’t expecting to get a PhD in nursing. As you will find out, the career of a nurse is varied and Dr. Franck talks about the options available to the soon to be minted BSN, and the co-host of the episode, my daughter.
Dr. Franck is part of The Center for Health and Community at The University of California San Francisco and Co-Director of the ACTION Center, fellowship program supporting PhD candidates and postdocs looking to focus on reproductive health. https://actions.ucsf.edu
