I want a doctorate in general nursing

I am doing general nursing and midwifery. I want to go for a doctorate. Can a student with a diploma in general nursing and midwifery do a doctorate study?

For a doctorate in any field, you necessarily require a master’s degree in that field. To do a master’s, you’ll require graduation first. Please note that a diploma is not equivalent to a graduate degree.
