Description:Our program offers applicants the possibility of developing a program of study that fits with their career plans. The program is intended to enable students to assume roles as clinical nurse specialists in a variety of different areas, as neonatal nurse practitioners, or to tailor their program towards a career in administration or international health.

The core content of all programs of study includes the conceptual knowledge base relevant to advanced practice nursing. This knowledge has been organized within a model of nursing known as the McGill Model and covers such areas as family intervention, health promotion, collaborative practice, learning, coping, development and working with strengths and resources. Under this umbrella, students also acquire in-depth knowledge of additional concepts and theories that are relevant to the discipline. Students will also develop their knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative research methods, engage in a systematic study of nursing problems and disseminate knowledge relevant to clinical practice.
