Professional practice leaders are responsible for ensuring and implementing expert practice, the facilitation of professional development, research and providing leadership; they are often charged with quality assurance and safety as well and the program is designed to develop expertise in these areas.
While the program is largely online, the first semester (Spring/Summer) does begin with a one-week mandatory face-to-face residency component to ensure that current professionals, with high working demands, are supported and to foster relationship-building amongst the cohort.
This Master of Science in Nursing (MScN) program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology is offered collaboratively with Trent University.
