Master of Nursing

The Master of Nursing (MN) program is founded upon the guiding principles of primary health care and designed to prepare nurses for advanced nursing practice through the integration of theory, research and practice. Graduates will incorporate evidence-based practice, leadership, advanced clinical decision-making, critical thinking, and collaboration in a variety of roles and settings.

The MN thesis stream graduate will be prepared to engage in a variety of advanced practice roles including direct care of individuals, families, communities or populations; education; administration; and research. Graduates of the nurse practitioner (NP) stream will be well prepared for evidence-based nursing practice as they assume the clinical, research, leadership, collaborator, and educator roles of the primary health care nurse practitioner.

Admission for the thesis stream occurs annually; admission for the nurse practitioner stream occurs every second year: the next NP intake is July, 2017. Both streams may be taken while working. The thesis stream must be completed in six (6) years and the nurse practitioner stream in three (3) years.
