Population Health - PhD in Nursing


Return to: PhD in Nursing  

Students in this focus area have the opportunity to develop leadership and advanced population health nursing skills in community-based assessment, program planning, interventions, and outcomes. Students learn to design and influence population health at the local, regional, and global levels by analyzing risk factors of disease and how to initiate preventative measures by conducting research to improve the health care needs of communities and populations. Students also explore how data is used to form policy recommendations and to draft legislation that promotes the equal distribution of health resources and reductions in health risks.
