The Nursing program at the University of Prince Edward Island has two streams: the Thesis stream and the Nurse Practitioner stream. The Master's program is built on the existing strengths of the faculty and the focus of PHC. Graduates from both streams are prepared to function in an advanced practice role in PHC settings. The degree designated upon successful completion of either stream is a Master of Nursing (MN).
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 graduate is prepared to engage in a variety of advanced practice roles including, but not limited to, direct care of individuals, families, communities, or populations; education; administration; and research.
- The MN Nurse Practitioner graduate is prepared to manage the health needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities across the lifespan in a variety of PHC settings. Graduates of the Nurse Practitioner stream are eligible to write the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) Canadian Nurse Practitioner Exam.
