The MSN in Public Health Nursing prepares nurses to become advocates for resources and policies to improve the health of all populations. Students gain a foundation in public health knowledge along with advanced nursing education.
Nurses learn how to utilize multiple technologies to organize health data related to patient, family, and community healthcare. Coursework examines ways to create culturally sensitive health promotion activities to benefit community health and wellness. A capstone project allows students to apply their knowledge and skills to a real-world public health issue.
