Welcome to the web pages of the Queen’s School of Nursing.
The Queen's School of Nursing has offered nursing programs for 75 years. The web pages should provide you with all the information you need but please do not hesitate to contact us if you are seeking additional information.
Nursing as a profession and discipline is constantly evolving and we pride ourselves in the Queen's School of Nursing on being responsive and maintaining high standards of education and preparing nurses for practice. Changes in technology allow us to offer many different modalities for learning while still maintaining small class sizes and opportunities for students to interact with faculty and staff. We always offer a number of work place opportunities for undergraduate students - particularly in the nursing laboratories. The undergraduate nursing programs are accredited by the Canadian Schools of Nursing and the next review will be in 2020.
In September 2017 we will be offering a Graduate Diploma in Pain Management for the first time to nurses and healthcare providers and we are expanding other graduate programs to meet the needs of nurses working in an increasingly complex environment in healthcare. The graduate diploma and the Masters of Science in Healthcare Quality are offered in collaboration with the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine.
The faculty are engaged in exciting research that will lead to improvements in how we care for people in the future. There are two research groups QcHcQ and QNHR. We are also very grateful for endowment funding that supports the Sally Smith Chair in Nursing.
Throughout all our programs we remember that we are preparing nursing learners for ever changing and expanding practice but we also remember our byline Caring to Learn: Learning to Care.
