MN-NP Field & Post-Master NP Diploma

NP Placement Overview

Master of Nursing, NP Field (MN-NP),
Post-Master of Nursing, NP Field (PMNP)

Our MN–NP and Post-Master NP programs are offered online and subsequently allow for a diversity of placement opportunities across Canada. While we can have most of our placement agreements in Ontario, we are open and willing to reach out to organizations outside of the province. NP students who wish to complete a placement outside of Ontario must submit their requests using our online form far in advance of the placement with the understanding that if the placement cannot be arranged, the student will complete the placement in Ontario.

NP students are required to complete four clinical placement courses for a total of 800 clinical hours:

  1. 100 hours as part of the Advanced Health Assessment and Clinical Reasoning course (NUR1101H, NUR1102H, or NUR1114H);
  2. 250 hours as part of the Advanced Health Assessment and Therapeutic Management I course (NUR1115H, NUR1116H, or NUR1117H);
  3. 250 hours as part of the Advanced Health Assessment and Therapeutic Management II course (NUR1215H, NUR1216H, or NUR1217H);
  4. 200 hours as part of the Nurse Practitioners: Roles and Issues course (NUR1221H, 1222H, or NUR1223H).

Potential practice settings are diverse, ranging from care in community settings for at-risk populations to caring for clients in an ICU setting. The preceptors for the NP program include nurse practitioners and physicians, many with a clinical appointment at the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing.

Our Practicum Placement & Professional Development Officer, Nora Jantschukeite is available for consultation and guidance with respect to all placement-related questions.
