So does using Node mean you can skip learing php altogether?
Yes

Also, considering it is javascript based, are the server side scripts run entirely on the server as with php?
Yes. One of the main advantages to Node too, is that you can have what's called an isomorphic application. Which is a fancy of way of saying you can run the same code on both the client and server. Stuff that accesses the DOM will be client only, but for algorithmic type routines it's the same code.

Or are there client and server security concerns that put using it at disadvantage compared to using an entirely server side language such as php?
No security concerns that PHP wouldn't also suffer. The main considerations are performance and available libraries. Google has put a lot of work into V8 (the JS engine Node is built on), so it's not nearly as slow as people would think. PHP can pre-compile into bytecode to speed up parsing prior to execution, but V8 also JITs in real time to native code in memory. Don't get me wrong, V8 will never be as fast as C/C++ or Rust and it's single threaded. But when compared to things like PHP, it does pretty well.

PHP vs Node js - Which programs are fastest?

PHP has a ton of built in functionality, like say for editing PDF files. Node doesn't. Fortunately, the community is huge for Node so finding a package to do most stuff is rarely a problem. In fact, it's so huge the real problem will be knowing which packages to avoid.

I say this as a dude who used to love PHP. I'll always have a fond soft spot for it, but times change.
