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 four programs:

  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Pediatrics/Global Health 
  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Adult Gerontology Primary Care/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Advanced Practice Nursing: Adult Gerontology Acute Care/Global Health
  • MS/MPH in Psychiatric Mental Health/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 (Nurse Practitioner and Midwifery programs) and/or national certification (Nurse Practitioner, Midwifery, Nursing Administration, Nursing Informatics).

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.

Once your online application is submitted, please send the following, original documents to the Office of Graduate Student Affairs and Admissions in one package:

  • One official transcript from each postsecondary school attended
  • An unofficial copy of your latest TOEFL or IELTS scores for applicants whose native language is not English. Official scores are required before an admission decision can be rendered. We require a minimum TOEFL internet-based score of 100 and an IELTS Band score of 7. 
  • An original course by course transcript evaluation for all transcripts received from foreign institutes of higher education.
  • GRE scores are NOT required for this program
