Our MN-PHCNP program consists of coursework, clinical placements, integrated practicum, and systematic review. 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, applying knowledge and skills related to pathophysiology, health assessment, diagnostics, therapeutics and the primary health care nurse practitioner role. Once you complete this two-year program, you'll be eligible to apply for the Canadian family/all-ages nurse practitioner examination.
