This edition of the journal explores issues in distance and in blended learning for doctoral nursing education. In the first peer-reviewed paper Drs. N.C. Sharts-Hopko and M.L. Fitzpatrick review the history and their overall experience of using distance education as a primary mode of content delivery for a research-focused doctoral nursing program. In the second, Drs. P. Aselton, J. Demartinis, and R. LeBlanc discuss the challenges and opportunities in preparing clinical scholars in an online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. Also in this issue, three doctoral nursing students from the US, China and the Philippines share experiences of their respective learning journeys. Finally three STTI/INDEN Fellowship reports are presented.
