Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Nursing Administration (MSN, MS, PhD)
Description The M.S.N. program prepares graduates to be leaders. Program completion opens new horizons for nurses in education, advanced practice, policy implementation, health care management, and nursing knowledge development. Applicants must be registered nurses with a bachelor's degree, normally in nursing, who meet the admission requirements of the UBC Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Program graduates develop skills in leadership in professional nursing practice. The program offers opportunities to move directly into doctoral studies. Students complete a total of 33 credits, comprising core, focus, and elective courses and a 3-credit research project (NURS 595) or a 6-credit thesis (NURS 599). The School of Nursing has been a leader in knowledge development and scholarship in nursing for almost 100 years. Our master's program alumni are making an impact at local, national, and international levels. Although we have one of the largest graduate nursing programs in Canada (over 150 MSN students), we offer graduate students an experience as part of a community of scholars characterized by diversity, mutual respect, and integration. Students are making significant contributions to knowledge development through their research projects. Our MSN program has long been reviewed and assessed by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia and many licensing boards across North America and accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing.
