Video: These nursing scholars are headed to Duke

These three Winston-Salem State University scholars are ready to become nurse scientists.

Nicole Calhoun, Morine Cebert and LaKita M.J. Knight, who will earn their master’s degree in nursing in May, will continue their education this fall as doctorate in nursing students at Duke University.

The Bridge to Doctorate is a collaborative partnership between Winston-Salem State University's Division of Nursing and Duke University School of Nursing that provides minority scholars enrolled in WSSU's Master of Science in Nursing program with an array of educational experiences to foster a seamless transition into the Ph.D. Program at Duke.
