The Advanced Population Health Nursing (APHN) Program is a distance-based master’s degree for registered nurses who wish to practice in Hawaii, the US mainland or in an international setting. Advanced population health nurses practice using outcome-driven strategies to manage health for groups of individuals.

The APHN program prepares graduates to engage with patients in diverse context, and develop valuable insight into how health care affects individuals, families, and communities. The program focuses on population-level health, wellness, social determinants of health, health promotion, and disease prevention. The student learns critical population health skills such as community and population assessment; complex project/program management; disaster nursing, health services research; and health policy analysis.

Curriculum

The Advanced Population Health Nursing (APHN) Program is a 30 credit curriculum. The student may select the thesis option and enroll in an additional 9 credits.
