B.S.–MPH Option

The School of Nursing and the Master of Public Health (MPH) program in the School of Medicine and Public Health have partnered to offer an advanced-placement B.S. in Nursing to MPH degree option. The option seeks to strengthen the public health nursing workforce by educating master’s-prepared public health nurses to provide population-based services and health education in the prevention of diseases and promotion of health in communities. Graduates of this option are able to complete a B.S. in Nursing and MPH degree in an accelerated fashion over five years (three years from admission to the nursing major). Graduates are prepared for a wide range of nursing and public health practice positions. Prospective students should be aware that the MPH degree does not prepare graduates to teach in nursing degree programs.
