Howard University’s College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences to Launch Two New Online Degrees

The Howard University College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences will launch two online degree programs scheduled to begin in 2024.

The master of health administration and doctor of nursing practice programs will equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to lead in today’s dynamic and intricate healthcare landscape while providing a flexible learning experience.

Howard University will be the only HBCU in the Washington, D.C. area to offer a fully online master of health administration program. While the healthcare workforce has become increasingly diverse, the American College of Healthcare Executives continues to emphasize the underrepresentation of racially and ethnically diverse employees in top healthcare leadership positions.

The DNP program offers two distinct concentrations for nurses holding a master’s degree – a generic DNP and a psych-mental health nurse practitioner DNP. Comprising 38 credits, students can choose between full-time and part-time enrollment options.

“These two programs are the beginning of greater healthcare initiatives to come from the college, that will address healthcare needs on a global level,” said Gina S. Brown, dean of the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. “Howard continues to lead out academically, strategically, and with excellence, not just among HBCU’s, but among the top-tiered universities in the world. We continue to stand proud of the practitioners that we produce at every level.”
