Doctoral Program in Nursing Health Policy:
The principal aim of the doctoral program in nursing with an emphasis on health policy is to educate students interested in academic careers in nursing with an emphasis on the study of issues in nursing, health, illness, medicine, health care, and the analysis of health and public policies. Coursework in the program is aimed at enabling students to develop their understanding of and capacities to use theory; develop research skills and statistical capacities; and develop a policy perspective on the many dimensions of nursing, health, illness, medicine, health care, and public health; develop the focused, independent research project necessary for completion of the doctoral dissertation; and ultimately contribute to the advancement of the nursing profession and the field of health policy. Doctoral students must be admitted to the School of nursing doctoral program and then elect an emphasis on health policy and they must take core courses in the nursing doctoral program along with specialty courses in health policy.
MS Program in Nursing Health Policy:
The Masters Degree program in health policy for nurses focuses on preparing students to provide policy leadership in a variety of settings. Graduates learn to identify and critically analyze laws, regulations and policies at the institutional, local, state and national levels.
They prepare to use their in-depth knowledge of the history, structure, theory and process of health policymaking in the United States to plan, implement, and evaluate policies. Additionally, they will understand the economic, ethical, and social implications of policy decisions, and devise and use strategies to effectively advocate for policy change.
