MSN-community nursing/MPH

  1. Hi There,

    I do not have my undergrad in nursing (my undergrad is in psych).
    My career goal is to work as a leader in the community health/health promotion field.

    What's the advantage of going through nursing school and then getting my masters in community nursing versus going straight into a MPH program?

    My guess is that the nursing degree increases your chances of being hired because you're more marketable.

    Does anyone have any info about this issue? Thanks so much!

    Hmmm...I have no idea! Sorry, just didn't want you to think you were being ignored! Hope someone else has a better response than mine!
