MSN-MPH Dual Degree Program

An extraordinary program in a unique environment, the dual-degree MSN-MPH combines the resources of the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the Rollins School of Public Health with some of the most renowned public health organizations in the world. Opportunities for professional growth are enhanced by proximity to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Cancer Society, and The Carter Center.

Overview

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.
