Overview

Master of Science in Nursing - Nurse practitioner options

he nurse practitioner (adult or family/all ages) and post-master's nurse practitioner graduate diploma options prepare nurses at an advanced level to practice as nurse practitioners (NPs). NPs work in a variety of settings such as in acute care, community clinics, emergency departments, out-patient clinics, family-physicians' offices, long-term care facilities and remote nursing stations. NPs are in high demand, and have an important role in helping to ensure the health and well-being of people in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The major thrust of the NP options is to build on a foundation of graduate nursing education. The role of the NP in advanced nursing practice is grounded in knowledge of theory and expanded practice skills in areas of advanced clinical decision-making, research, consultation, collaboration and leadership. Nurse practitioners have advanced knowledge and decision-making skills in health assessment, diagnosis and health care management of common and complex conditions.

NP option-specific objectives:

In addition to meeting general objectives of the MScN program, graduates of the NP option will be able to:

  • Work collaboratively and act as a consultant to members of the health team in clinical practice
  • Refer and accept referrals from members of the health team in clinical practice
  • Demonstrate evidence-informed care to individuals, families and communities within a given stream of practice; and
  • Practice advanced nursing within the domains and competencies of NP practice

Applicants are strongly discouraged from applying to the practicum option with hopes of transferring to the nurse practitioner option as requests for transfers are very rarely granted as space in the NP option is limited. Students who are interested in the NP option should apply to the NP option.
