A Powerful Combination: DNP/MPH Dual Degree
The Doctor of Nursing Practice & the Master’s in Public Health
The DNP/MPH dual degree program allows nursing students to bridge the knowledge of two caring disciplines: nursing and public health.
As a DNP/MPH, you will create and implement evidenced-based interventions to provide quality care that improves the health and wellbeing of individuals, families, communities, and populations. You will learn how to effectively address public health policy problems and influence policy-makers to make change at all levels. Population-based solutions are increasingly critical during this time of great healthcare reform.
You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complex relationship between nursing practice and public health delivery system.
For DNP students, the dual degree can be completed with two additional semesters of study
DNP student choose up to 12 credits of public health elective classes to complement their DNP program curriculum
The DNP scholarly project may meet curriculum requirements for both programs
Because 14 nursing credits transfer to the Master’s in Public Health (with approval), the dual degree saves time and money.
