Chamberlain College of Nursing has broadened its reach in healthcare education with the establishment of Chamberlain University and the launch of a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree within the new College of Health Professions. The MPH degree expands the academic offerings of Chamberlain University which includes pre-and post-licensure nursing degree programs in the existing College of Nursing.
Chamberlain University was created to build upon the legacy of the Chamberlain College of Nursing and fulfill a vision of extending the mission to educate, empower, and embolden diverse healthcare professionals to advance the health of people, families, communities, and nations. Susan Groenwald, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, president of Chamberlain University, tells Chamberlain.edu:
“For more than 125 years, Chamberlain College of Nursing has worked to transform healthcare through the preparation of extraordinary nurses. The establishment of Chamberlain University and the College of Health Professions is a natural evolution of our vision and will benefit our students and society. We are excited about Chamberlain’s future and are looking forward to playing a bigger role in helping transform healthcare in local and global communities.”
The new MPH degree will enhance the Chamberlain focus on providing health and wellness education, improving healthcare policy, and collaborating with others to achieve a culture of health through interdisciplinary collaboration and making health a shared value across communities. Public health initiatives improve lives worldwide by increasing life expectancy, promoting healthy lifestyles, and researching prevention of infectious diseases. The MPH degree program is a 42-credit-hour degree program including practicum fieldwork that can be completed in two years of full-time study.
