Program Overview

The online Master of Science in Nursing / Population Health is designed to prepare advanced population health nurses to address the health needs of vulnerable populations and communities as they currently exist, and as they will evolve in the future. 

Students acquire advanced knowledge and skills in population and community needs assessment, analysis of aggregate data, health planning, as well as program development, implementation, and evaluation.  Focusing on health promotion and prevention, the program allows students to select a vulnerable population focus for study across the curriculum, such as:

  • women and infants
  • children
  • teens
  • adults with chronic illnesses
  • geriatric clients
  • clients with ethnic or racial disparities
  • infectious disease clients

The scope of public health/population health nursing practice and concepts of disaster management, systems leadership, quality and safety are integrated into various courses throughout the curriculum.
