Overview

Master of Science in Nursing

The Master of Science in Nursing (MScN) program focuses on professional practice leadership and will prepare graduates to contribute to an increasingly complex health-care sector by providing an education that includes mentorship, interdisciplinary opportunities and experiential learning through research, project and class assignments. 

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 program is offered collaboratively with Trent University.
