In this column, the authors focus on the need for more PhD-prepared nurses as opposed to nurses receiving the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). This would help to to facilitate an understanding between traditional research and translational research. The idea of a need for collaboration between these two terminal degrees is highlighted. To that end, the history and intent of the research doctorate and the practice doctorate are entertained along with a brief description of the traditional and translational research processes.
