I am considering going into public health in a few years. I know without a shadow of a doubt that i won't do bedside nursing for the full length of my career. Is MPH the route to go to get there, or should I go for MSN with a specialty?

You could do either depending.g on what you wanted to do. There are some schools that have mph/MSN programs (uab) and schools that have MSN programs that focus on public health through their management programs (I know university of south Alabama) has one. The director of my unit has an mph instead of a MSN, so its really up to you.
