School:Laurentian University/Université Laurentienne - School of Graduate Studies
Faculty:School of Graduate Studies
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
Description:The Master of Science in Nursing (MScN) program produces graduates who have the knowledge, values, attitudes and competencies reflecting the philosophy, nature and scope of nursing in northern rural and remote areas. The program provides learners with opportunities to understand discovery, integration, application and dissemination of knowledge delimited by rigor and ethical integrity. The learner will develop a richer understanding of the discipline of nursing and its relationship to the context of health care service delivery and policy issues. The program also broadens learners' understanding of nursing by encouraging them to engage with scholars from other departments and disciplines as well as those with other professional experiences.



Students in the MScN program will complete a thesis, which places emphasis on developing research abilities. Graduates will be eligible for doctoral programs. Applicants are expected to contact MScN faculty members to review their research interests with them and their fit as a supervisor. If confirmed, identification of a MScN faculty supervisor should be identified on their admission essay.
