About Master of Science in Nursing at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

The M.S.N. program prepares graduates to be leaders. Program completion opens new horizons for nurses in education, advanced practice, policy implementation, health care management, and nursing knowledge development. Applicants must be registered nurses with a bachelor's degree, normally in nursing, who meet the admission requirements of the UBC Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Program graduates develop skills in leadership in professional nursing practice. The program offers opportunities to move directly into doctoral studies. Students complete a total of 33 credits, comprising core, focus, and elective courses and a 3-credit research project (NURS 595) or a 6-credit thesis (NURS 599).

What sets the UBC program apart?

The School of Nursing has been a leader in knowledge development and scholarship in nursing for almost 100 years. Our master's program alumni are making an impact at local, national, and international levels.

Although we have one of the largest graduate nursing programs in Canada (over 150 MSN students), we offer graduate students an experience as part of a community of scholars characterized by diversity, mutual respect, and integration. Students are making significant contributions to knowledge development through their research projects.

Our MSN program has long been reviewed and assessed by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia and many licensing boards across North America and accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing.

Career Options

The MSN program (24 months) prepares students for employment in the public or private sector, or to pursue further studies in a Ph.D. program. Graduates occupy leadership positions within numerous health authorities in Canada and the international community, as well as teaching positions in colleges and universities.

Program graduates create new initiatives in delivery of care, the advancement and application of knowledge, and the evolution of health policy. UBC MSN-prepared nurses have made major contributions in countries around the world, including Haiti, India, and South Africa. Our current students can transition into our Ph.D. in nursing program or complete their programs and pursue PhD programs at Kings College and London School of Hygiene in the United Kingdom, and University of Toronto.
