About Master of Nursing - Nurse Practitioner at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

The M.N. Nurse Practitioner (M.N.-N.P.) program prepares nurse practitioners to work in primary care settings. Graduates assess, diagnose, and treat common and predictable conditions across the lifespan, and are eligible to apply for registration as Nurse Practitioner (Family) in British Columbia. Applicants must meet general requirements of the UBC Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, hold current registration as a Registered Nurse in British Columbia, and have completed a minimum of three years of clinical practice as a registered nurse. We seek applicants with demonstrated clinical excellence, and autonomous action. In accordance with the professional and regulatory requirements associated with advanced nursing practice, the MN-NP program normally comprises 56 credits of coursework, combining 9 credits of graduate level theory courses (M.S.N. program core requirements), up to 44 credits of primary health care theory and practice training, and a 3-credit culminating scholarly project.
