It’s right in the name—the MSN in Public Health is a nursing degree designed for current RNs, while an MPH is designed for non-nursing professionals.
Enroll in an MSN in Public Health and you’ll take nursing specific courses covering topics such as technology and nursing informatics, research methods, evidence-based practice, pathophysiology, pharmacology, and much more. You’ll have the opportunity to pursue the public health track while continuing to advance your nursing knowledge and skills.
