Flexibility and opportunity set our graduate programs apart!

Master of Nursing

Nurses are busy people, and our Master of Nursing (MN) program is offered via distance learning, giving students the chance, and the time, to deepen and broaden their knowledge and competencies while in many cases balancing work and home life. 

The Practicum option of our MN program offers students the unique opportunity to work on projects drawn from their places of employment, projects that deal with real issues and real solutions. 

The Nurse Practitioner Option / Post-Master's Nurse Practitioner Graduate Diploma prepares nurses at an advanced level to work as nurse practitioners in a variety of settings.

All three options in the MN program are designed to prepare students in advance practice nursing. The advanced practitioner has a well-developed knowledge base, uses critical thinking and demonstrates advanced skills in all areas of nursing.

Advanced nursing practice skills are developed through the testing of selected nursing interventions, implementation of research findings, and the analysis and critique of theoretical work that engages students in advanced study and nursing practice. These skills are also developed as students work with faculty on research projects covering many aspects of the profession, from administration to client care.

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing

In September 2013, Memorial's School of Nursing launched a PhD program. It's a full-time, on site program that aims to prepare the next generation of nurse researchers and scholars to take their places as leaders in nursing practice, education, research, administration, and policy.

Our next intake of doctoral students will be in September 2015.  Read more about the program.
