This unique degree option gives undergraduate nursing students the opportunity to seek early admission to the Master of Public Health (MPH) program and enroll in selected MPH courses while completing requirements for the BSN. Students are able to complete both degrees (the BSN and the MPH) over five years (three years from admission to the nursing program). Graduates are prepared for a wide range of nursing and public health practice positions.

Interested students apply during their first year in the upper division nursing program with applications due in February. Changes in the curriculum, to incorporate MPH courses along with the nursing courses, occur during the second year. Review the BSN-MPH Program Plan for details.

Visit the Master of Public Health Program website for details about that program.
