Students who already have a bachelor's degree in nursing can pursue our DNP Advanced Practice degree with specialties in nurse practitioner and clinical nurse specialist populations. Interested in obtaining an MPH? Students can also earn their MSN Public Health Nursing/MPH through a joint degree program with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
