Description Building on a foundation of theory, philosophy, research and clinical practice, the Master of Nursing (M.N.) Program prepares nurses for advanced practice roles, building on students' experience in diverse practice settings. Master of Nursing programs prepare nurses for advanced practice in focused areas that may include direct clinical practice, education, or health policy/leadership. The thesis-based program offers a focused supervised research experience. Thesis-based students have a total of four years to complete the program. The Master's Program offers three routes: M.N. course-based, M.N. thesis-based and the integrated Master of Nursing/Nurse Practitioner (M.N./NP). Both the M.N. course-based and the M.N. thesis-based routes require a minimum of two years of clinical experience. The M.N. course-based program can be taken concurrently with the post-master's Nurse Practitioner (NP) Diploma program, commonly referred to as the M.N./NP. The M.N./NP program requires a minimum of three years of clinical experience in the applicant's proposed area of focus.
