NL invests $3.6 million in new MUN distance-ed master's nursing program

April 30, 2013

Memorial University’s School of Nursing, in collaboration with the Centre for Nursing Studies, has launched a new nurse practitioners master's program. The master of nursing nurse practitioner program began in January 2013 with significant funding support from the Newfoundland and Labrador government. The province is investing approximately $3.6 million in the MNNP program over 5 years. The 2-year nurse program is being offered through MUN in collaboration with the Centre for Nursing Studies. Over the past 2 years, faculty from both sites worked together to develop curriculum for the new program. The program is unique in that it is offered through distance education, which allows nurses to advance their education while continuing to work in their field. The MNNP program is one of 2 new graduate programs at the university’s School of Nursing. The other, a PhD in nursing, will begin this fall. MUN News Release | NL News Release
