Welcome to the Faculty of Nursing

Educating nurses for over 50 years, Memorial University of Newfoundland's Faculty of Nursing has grown a reputation for excellence in this province, across the country and internationally.

We offer a bachelor of science in nursing (BScN) program with a four-year option and three-year accelerated option. Our graduate programs include a master of science in nursing (MScN) program with practicum and nurse practitioner (NP) options, a post-master’s nurse practitioner graduate diploma in Nursing, and a doctor of philosophy (PhD) in Nursing.

Nursing is one of today’s most challenging and rewarding careers, and nurses play a vital role in our health care system. They work to promote health and prevent illness in a variety of settings. As educators we are privileged to guide the development of future generations of nurses and nurse leaders.

When COVID-19 took the world by storm in March 2020, the Faculty of Nursing’s (FON) team of Learning Resource Centre (LRC) instructors went home with more than laptop computers and notebooks.
