This three- to four-year program will expand the multi-disciplinary skills of public health nurses and nurse scholars to better support them in working in partnership with populations and health systems.

The doctorate component of the program will prepare registered nurses for advanced practice roles, nursing leadership and the application of evidence-informed decision-making models to nursing practice.

The master’s degree portion of the program will offer social justice and practical skills-based frameworks for achieving health equity through partnerships, with a focus on health conditions that transcend borders.
