Background & Aim: In order to improve the quality and dynamics of nursing education programs, quantitative and qualitative evaluations should be carried out continuously. Comparative study is one of the methods which is widely used in many parts of the world as a prerequisite for designing new educational systems. Therefore, the present study compared the expected competencies of PhD students in nursing in Iran and top universities in the world.
Materials & Methods: This study was conducted through a descriptive comparative manner and using the Beredy. Brought method in four stages of description, interpretation, and neighborhood. The Ph.D. nursing program at the top universities of the world was prepared on the basis of the Shanghai University rankings worldwide, from the websites of Iran’s Ministry of Health of Iran. In order to obtain more information, a broad electronic search of national and international databases was done at 2018 until 2007 using the databases of Google Scholars, PubMed, Science Direct, CINAHL IranMedex, SID, and Magiran.
Results: The expected abilities of PhD students in nursing in different programs and Iran are the acquisition of various educational, care, clinical, leadership, and philosophy and research abilities. All of these programs seek to train researchers who use research as a tool for developing leadership, management, nursing science and education.
Conclusion: without enrichment of the curriculum and proper planning, it is impossible and unrealistic to expect a student to possess multiple abilities. Transferring some superficial theoretic materials, repeating what the students learned previously, ultimately would confuse the student and increase their worries toward their endpoint and would decrease their motivation toward learning.  Then, such students cannot be expected to promote the nursing profession in Iran.
