Special Features

What makes it a dual program?

With approval, you may apply up to 14 credits of nursing courses toward the MPH and up to 12 credits of public health courses toward the DNP. This allows you to reduce the length program, saving you time and money.

MPH Culminating Experience

If you decide on a DNP project that is public health related, the project may also meet the curriculum requirements of the MPH Culminating Experience. To do this, you will need to receive approval from the SPH adviser and complete the MPH proposal form.

Field Experience

When the DNP clinical experience pertains to both nursing and public health, it may also meet the curriculum requirements of both programs. The School of Public Health requires 180 hours of field experience and has an electronic field experience agreement that must be completed by you and approved by the SPH adviser.
