Abstract

Background: There is a significant need for more nurses to enrol in doctoral studies and to improve attrition rates in these courses. It is therefore important that those who consider undertaking doctoral studies are prepared for the many challenges associated with pursuing a higher degree by research. Aim: To present a personal reflection of the first year of doctoral study to inform others about the challenges and joys associated with beginning a doctorate, as well as to demystify some of the challenges of studying a PhD, and to encourage nurses and other healthcare professionals to pursue a doctorate.
