Design and contents of an advanced distance-based statistics course for a PhD in nursing program

Academic Article


  • Doctoral nursing students and researchers are expected to understand, critique, and conduct research that uses advanced quantitative methodology. The authors describe the design and contents of a distance-based course in multivariate statistics for PhD students in nursing and health administration, compare the design to recommendations found in the literature for distance-based statistics education, and compare the course contents to a tabulation of the methodologies used in a sample of recently published quantitative dissertations in nursing. The authors conclude with a discussion based on these comparisons as well as with experiences in course implementation and directions for future course development.
