Master of Nursing - Course-based
Master of Nursing programs prepare nurses for advanced practice in focused areas that may include direct clinical practice, education, or health policy/leadership. Course-based students have a total of six years to complete the program.

Master of Nursing - Thesis-based
Master of Nursing programs prepare nurses for advanced practice in focused areas that may include direct clinical practice, education, or health policy/leadership. The thesis-based program offers a focused supervised research experience. Thesis-based students have a total of four years to complete the program.

MN-Nurse Practitioner
The Master of Nursing course-based program can be taken concurrently with the post-master’s Nurse Practitioner (NP) Diploma program, commonly referred to as the MN/NP. The MN/NP program offers an adult health acute care focus.

Post-Master’s Nurse Practitioner Program
The Faculty of Nursing offers a Post-Master’s Nurse Practitioner (NP) Diploma program that prepares students to be eligible for licensing as a Nurse Practitioner by the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA). Experienced nurses prepare to practice as adult health nurse practitioners, primarily in acute care settings. Nurse Practitioners engage in the full scope of nursing practice including medical diagnosis, ordering of diagnostic tests, and prescription of drugs.

The NP Diploma program is designed for full-time studies over a 1.5-year period with a focus on adult health nurse practitioner preparation.

The NP Diploma can be pursued as a stand-alone program at the post-master’s level, or in conjunction with the Master of Nursing course-based degree program. In this integrated program route (commonly referred to as the MN/NP), students earn a Master’s degree and the NP Diploma concurrently.
