Masters in Public Health Nursing

Attend our next university-wide graduate open house or an information session held periodically in the nursing office in Auerbach Hall.

Healthcare reform places a demand for nurse leaders in the area of population health in community and global settings. The program of study includes the science of public health, foundations of public health theory, and healthcare policy and politics. Nurses are prepared to synthesize nursing practice and public health theory to promote and preserve the health of families, aggregates, communities and populations. Graduates assume roles in public health and community settings; including public health departments, community and global health agencies, home care, schools, and occupational health settings.    

Through scholarly projects, creative partnerships with faculty, practical experiences, opportunities for international travel, and selection of relevant cognate courses, you can personalize your program of study to meet your individual career goals.

You can complete your degree in 2,3, or 4 years on a part-time basis depending upon whether you enroll in one or two courses each semester and summer.
