DNP/MPH Dual Degree

Join the Ranks of Public Health Nurse Leaders


Scholars in the Doctor of Nurse Practice, Masters of Public Health (DNP/MPH) dual-degree program concurrently earn a DNP from the University of Colorado’s College of Nursing and a Masters of Public Health from the Colorado School of Public Health. Electives allow students to tailor studies to their interests. The dual degree requires 21 fewer credits than earning the two degrees separately. Graduates of this program are prepared to meet the growing trend of multiple chronic conditions emerging earlier in patients.

The DNP/MPH dual degree is ideal for:

  • Individuals with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing
  • Nurses with a master's in a nursing specialty other than public/community health

Nurses who hold a Master of Public/Community Health Nursing may apply to either the dual degree program or the DNP-PHN degree.
