School of Nursing and Health Sciences rolls out two new programs
In the fall, La Salle launched a five-year Master of Public Health (MPH) program and a Wound, Ostomy, and Continence (WOC) post-baccalaureate certificate program available through the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
The five-year MPH prepares students to solve public health problems with emphasis on health disparities in urban communities. A 48-credit program that leverages a hybrid delivery model, the MPH features a practice immersion and a capstone project that emphasize case findings, health education, and disease prevention. Students enrolled in La Salle’s Bachelor of Science in Public Health program can apply for acceptance into the five-year MPH program as second-year students (in the spring semester) or as third-year students (in the fall semester).
The WOC certificate program, offered by the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, is available this fall. The program readies students to become specialists in the caring for patients with WOC needs, while facilitating their professional development and fostering interprofessional collaborative practice. Upon graduation from the 13-credit online program, students are eligible for the WOC nursing national certification examination.
