The program of study leading to the Master of Science in Nursing and the Master of Public Health is designed for nurses who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills in community/public health as well as clinical nursing. The curriculum consists of both Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Public Health core and specialty content. The number of courses and the time required to obtain the two degrees are reduced by eliminating duplication. The program can be completed in six or seven semesters of full-time study, depending on the number and availability of classes each semester. Part-time enrollment is available to those who wish to pursue the degree while working. Graduates are prepared to apply for the appropriate Nurse Practitioner and/or Certified Nurse Midwife certification examinations. Applicants to the MSN-MPH dual degree program must apply and meet admission requirements for both the School of Nursing and the School of Public Health. For more information on the MPH program visit the Rollins School of Public Health.
The School of Nursing Selects Applicants who are best qualified academically and who have the greatest potential for success in the MSN program. We evaluate all undergraduate course work and give preference to applicants with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. Application deadlines can be found here.
