Master of Nursing (Post-NP Certificate)

Please note: September 2018 to August 2019 will be the final offering of this program.

The Queen’s School of Nursing offers a challenging and innovative MN (Post-NP Certificate) program to prepare you with the critical appraisal skills needed for developing the scientific basis for nursing practice, and the knowledge and skills to conduct small research projects and participate in research teams. Situated in an academic environment that embodies scholarship, graduates are well prepared for careers as leaders in clinical practice and education.

Our MN (Post-NP Certificate) is a one-year, full-time course of study for nurses who received a Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner (PHCNP) certificate from Queen’s University (or Lakehead University for applicants wishing to take the program at Lakehead University) between 2010 and present and wish to complete a Master of Nursing degree. Our program consists of coursework and the completion of a systematic review. You will be taught primarily in small graduate seminars, in which you will engage in a lively, critical examination of theory, clinical practice, and research. 

The research programs of faculty in the School of Nursing are reflected through 3 clusters of research: 1) populations with complex health conditions, 2) practice environments, and 3) health care quality. Primary health care is the main field of study in our MN (Post-NP Certificate) program.
