Graduates specializing in the Advanced Community Public Health Nursing specialty are prepared to collaborate with community and organizational members in the design, implementation, and evaluation of health programs for vulnerable populations. The specialty is designed to improve the health of communities and populations at risk by providing nurses with knowledge and skills in community and public health nursing, health promotion and illness prevention, program development, research, and consultation.
Students develop leadership abilities through course work and practice experiences. Clinical and fieldwork experiences take place in community or public health settings selected according to individual student interests. The Advanced Community/Public Health Leadership and Program Development specialty requires completion of 103-106 course credits. Students choose between the Scholarly Project (3 credits) and Thesis (6 credits) for their capstone experience. Graduates are eligible for national certification exams. Seattle University College of Nursing was granted a full 10-year accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in 2012.
In addition: 1 year of High School or 1 quarter of college chemistry is also a major prerequisite.
After applications are reviewed, selected applicants will be invited for an interview with faculty.
