The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing and Midwifery at Victoria University is an advanced degree that is awarded for thesis-based research which enables research students to independently make a valuable, original and substantial contribution to knowledge in Nursing and Midwifery. Research students will be required to apply intellectual rigor to the formulation of a research question(s), the employment of a range of research methods and the comprehensive analysis of findings in a significant research project, in the context of existing research. This should be conducted in consideration of intercultural and international contexts; social and environmental sustainability and application to industry, community, government, or the professions. In this unit of study, and in consultation with a thesis supervisor, the students will be expected to demonstrate the progress towards thesis completion.
