The Master of Nursing - Leadership in Professional Nursing Practice program (MN-Leadership) program prepares students to be leaders in an increasingly complex health care system, with a focus on transferrable core knowledge.

The Master of Nursing - Primary Health Care Nursing Practice program (MN-PHCNP) program utilizes a combination of on-site and distance learning and offers full- and part-time options in collaboration with a consortium of Ontario universities.
