The Master of Nursing (MN) program responds to the high-paced rate of change in the nursing field. We are committed to giving you the tools you need to succeed in leadership roles in practice, education and administration.

Our graduates gain core knowledge of the discipline and substantive knowledge in a chosen domain of nursing. We strive to prepare graduates who will promote evidence-informed practice, influence the delivery of care and advance and disseminate nursing knowledge.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
  • Registration as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) in Manitoba or your home jurisdiction. Applicants to the Clinical Stream must be registered with the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba.
  • A baccalaureate degree in nursing, mental health nursing or psychiatric nursing or its equivalent from an approved or accredited university.
    In exceptional circumstances, applicants with a degree in another discipline may be considered, providing the applicant is a Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN). For these individuals, up to an additional year of course work may be required prior to consideration for admission to the graduate program as a regular student.
  • Completion of a Research Methods course and an introductory Statistics course with a minimum grade of 2.5 (C+) in each course.
    It is highly recommended that Statistics be taken within the last five years and Research Methods be taken within the last eight years to ensure currency. Please check with the Graduate Program Student Advisor to determine whether the courses your have completed meet this requirement.
  • Additional Admission Requirements:
      Applications are accepted from students currently enrolled in these two prerequisite courses, but the courses must be completed by the end of April and grades submitted no later than May 15.

      A minimum adjusted grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B) in the last 60 credit hours of university study.
      The Graduate Studies Committee in the College of Nursing reviews all applications, but final approval rests with the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Program admission is on a competitive basis and submission of the above requirements in no way guarantees program acceptance.
