The Doctorate in Nursing Education program is designed to prepare nurse educators for the 21st century. 

Competencies of the program include the knowledge and skills in theoretical and analytic approaches to the discovery and application of knowledge in nursing education. The program outcomes reflect the Core Competencies of Nurse Educators by the National League for Nursing (2019).

The program is offered 100% online and includes a total of 60 semester hours. Classroom instruction is delivered solely through asynchronous communication.

University of West Georgia monitors regulations governing online education at the state and federal level. As of March 2016, UWG was approved to participate in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), as part of the state of Georgia's membership and as of May 2017 the State of Georgia joined the Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC). As a result, UWG may enroll residents of many, but not all, states outside of Georgia.
