BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary in Bismarck is set to start offering a doctorate of nursing practice degree at its School of Health Sciences.

The new offering is the university’s second doctoral degree. The university previously only offered a doctorate in physical therapy. That physical therapy doctorate program was started in 2003.

University of Mary announced the new doctoral degree in a statement on Tuesday.

Nursing division director of graduate and distance education Dr. Billie Madler says the new program will help address the shortage of primary care professionals in the state and amplify the university’s educational opportunities.

The first doctoral class is expected to graduate in May 2016.
