Dual Degree in Nursing (MS/MPH)

In collaboration with the highly acclaimed NYU College of Nursing, we offer a three-year dual degree MS/MPH program designed to integrate advanced practice nursing and public health training, preparing you to assume leadership positions in a variety of settings. At completion of this full-time program, you will have earned a Master of Science in Nursing (MS) and a Master of Public Health (MPH), starting you off in a prime position for advanced career options in either field.

Applicants to the MS/MPH can apply to one of eight programs:

  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Mental Health/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Pediatrics/ Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Adult Acute Care NP/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Adult Primary Care NP/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Nursing Administration/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Nursing Education/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Nursing Informatics/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Midwifery/Global Health

What Can I Do with This Degree?

The MS/MPH dual degrees provide you with the necessary skill to pursue professional careers in both nursing and public health, and for leadership roles in community healthcare settings, government agencies, and non-profit organizations in the United States and internationally. Completion of the MS component of the MS/MPH program will lead to eligibility for state licensure and/or national certification, depending on the program.

How Do I Apply?

You must apply separately and be admitted to both the MS and MPH programs: MS program application and MPH program application and instructions.
