Program Overview

Degree offered: M.S.N.

The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program offers opportunities for baccalaureate nurses to develop and advance their professional knowledge, practice, and scholarship. Graduate students will engage in scholarly inquiry within a chosen area of nursing practice. Consistent with the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) definition, nursing practice is broadly defined as practice within the domains of clinical work, education, administration and research. In addition to a required core of foundation courses, students will select either a course-based or a research-based stream. The course-based stream may be completed in 16 months of full time study. The research-based stream requires a minimum of 24 months of full-time study. Both streams have part-time options and are offered via a combination of flexible delivery and intensive summer courses offered on campus. Graduates will be prepared to participate in knowledge development, application, integration, and translation through leadership roles within their practice setting.
