In collaboration with a consortium of nine Ontario universities, you will be taught primarily through small in-person graduate seminars, clinical placements, and self-directed learning online. You will engage in a critical examination of theory and research, with application of your knowledge and skills related to pathophysiology, health assessment, diagnostics, therapeutics and the primary health care nurse practitioner role.
