Program Overview

Program Description:

Improving health outcomes for entire communities is the focus of a public health nurse leader. Start the journey toward transforming health in your community.

As a nurse, you see disparities and inconsistencies in the healthcare system every day. Invest your energy in improving access and care for people in your community and beyond with Walden’s MSN program. One of the few of its kind offered fully online, our MSN program with a specialization in Public Health Nursing prepares you to assume leadership roles in assessing communities and populations; identifying high-risk groups; and developing culturally sensitive, acceptable, and realistic population-based nursing interventions.

Graduates of the MSN program will have the graduate degree they need to pursue APHN-BC certification through portfolio application.

Career Impact

The demand for public health nurses is on the rise, with government agencies recognizing that services provided by public health nurses can help lower overall healthcare costs. Preventive care, screening, and health education—particularly in low-income and rural areas—have proven to be effective public health measures within the community. 

Walden's MSN Public Health Nursing specialization can help position you to work as a nurse leader in diverse settings such as public health departments, home health agencies, schools, wellness centers, industry, and rural or urban healthcare facilities."
