Why to study
The focus of the Family Nurse Practitioner Program is general family practice—that is care for individuals, families, groups and communities across all life stages. Family Nurse Practitioners are health professionals who have achieved the advanced nursing practice competencies at the graduate level of nursing education. Nurse Practitioners, who are regulated by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia, provide health care services from a holistic nursing perspective, integrated with the autonomous diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illness, including ordering diagnostic tests and prescribing medications.
The Master of Science in Nursing Program at the University of Northern British Columbia, leads to an advanced nursing practice degree that focuses on preparing graduates across a range of areas and specialties to act as autonomous practitioners. In addition, this program aims to prepare graduates as interprofessional collaborators, nurse researchers, leaders, educators, change agents, and role models. Graduates of this program will work in a variety of health care settings as clinical nurse specialists, educators, administrators, and researchers, and will work with diverse populations across all age groups.
