DNP & Post-Bachelor’s Certificate in PUBLIC HEALTH NURSING

The need for public health nurse leaders is expected to grow significantly in the coming decade due to the increasing frequency of natural and environmental disasters and public health emergencies, climate change, an aging population and growing concerns about health disparities and social justice issues. COVID-19 has revealed deep gaps within an already fragmented U.S. health care system, heightening the need for team-based care, infection control, person-centered care and other skills that capitalize on the strengths of nurses.

The DNP in Public Health Nursing prepares nurses to apply knowledge, skills, and abilities to respond to these events using evidence from research to design, implement, and evaluate population-based interventions and to lead efforts to advance public health initiatives at the local, state, tribal, federal and global levels. This program has Advanced Public Health Nursing and Occupational Health Nursing tracks (both tracks use the same application). VIEW OUR RECENT ONLINE PUBLIC HEALTH INFO SESSION.

REQUIREMENTS: No RN experience required!

  • Students with no RN experience at the time of the start of the program are expected to work as an RN for at least the first year of the program
  • Recommended GPA of 3.25.
