The goal of the MN program at the University of New Brunswick is to prepare nurses for advanced professional roles through course work, as well as meaningful engagement with partners/stakeholders. The MN program is designed to equip students with an integrative knowledge of nursing leadership, research, theory, and practice. Students are encouraged to design, with an academic advisor, a program of study that will enable them to assume advanced professional roles in their area of specific interest.

While in the program, students will have opportunities to develop leadership capacity by exploring issues and challenges within health and health care. Recent MN graduates have gone on to complete doctoral programs or to assume leadership positions within the healthcare sector, government, and non-governmental organizations. Graduates of the nurse practitioner stream are working in a variety of primary healthcare centres across the province and Canada. Opportunities for teaching and research assistantships are available for full-time students located in Fredericton, Saint John and Moncton. Students enrolled in the thesis stream have been successful in securing funding to support their studies from external funding agencies such as the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, Canadian Nurses Foundation and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
