    The Master of Nursing program prepares advanced practice nurses to be professional leaders in their chosen advanced practice field. The objectives for the program are to prepare graduates who:

    • Demonstrate translational expertise using evidence from nursing research, related academic and clinical disciplines and professional institutions as a basis for advanced nursing practice (administration and leadership)
    • Participate in research activities and undertake practice projects consistent with their professional preparation
    • Demonstrate the ability to continually assess and acquire new skills to manage health issues in individuals, defined populations and care systems, and evaluate the effectiveness of these advanced nursing practices
    • Mentor others effectively in professional settings
    • Are well informed and deeply committed to standards of ethical practice
    • Demonstrate through completion of courses and related scholarly papers and projects, knowledge about theoretical foundations, professional structures, standards, and practices relevant to their identified field of nursing administration
    • Develop and utilize leadership strategies from experience and academic learning, to foster improvement of health and health care at the individual, system, organizational and community level.

    There are 3 fields of study in the Master of Nursing program and students can only enroll in one of the fields of study:

    The MN program is designed to provide students with knowledge, skills and competencies required for advanced practice nurses. The program provides opportunities to effectively implement a broad range of theoretical and research evidence in practice, a learning environment that reflects this research-intensive university, and an education that is responsive to a breadth of ideas and the complexities of caring for highly diverse populations within a variety of settings.

    The program combines development of scholarly knowledge and professional expertise. Students are engaged in course work, seminars, simulation (Nurse Practitioner field of study), online learning, and advanced nursing practice. MN students must enroll on a full-time basis.

    The MN program is normally completed in two years over six consecutive semesters. The learning format for each field of study is unique. The Clinical Nursing field of study program is offered on campus and in-class only.

    The Nurse Practitioner field is offered primarily online but requires some on-campus residency periods. The Health Systems Leadership and Administration field is also offered primarily online but requires some on-campus residency periods.
