Overview

Graduate nursing education builds on undergraduate education through the integration of theory, research, and practice. Our graduates are prepared as leaders in advanced nursing practice. Graduates will influence the domains of education, research, administration, practice and nursing knowledge and outcomes. This program is available at the University of Manitoba. 

The College of Nursing offers a graduate program (NP stream) which, upon completion, leads to a Master of Nursing degree. This degree is achieved through an innovative, course-based, non-thesis program of study comprised of 45 credit hours and more than 700 clinical hours at the advanced practice level.

The goal of the Nurse Practitioner stream is to prepare nurses with the advanced knowledge and skills to function as first line providers of health care and health promotion in primary care, to clients throughout the life span. The program of study, taught by an interdisciplinary faculty, provides a strong basis in physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, advanced health assessment, community health, evidence informed practice and role development.
