University of Calgary - Faculty of Nursing



The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary has a proud history going back more than 40 years. The faculty has grown from a school of nursing in the newly formed University of Calgary in the 1960s to a full-on faculty in the 1970s. It began with a Bachelor of Nursing program and has expanded to include a graduate program of master's, nurse practitioner and doctoral studies. Concurrent with the addition of graduate studies, the faculty embarked on a research program. In 2015, the faculty proudly supports four chairs in nursing research and a solid track record of contribution to the advancement of nursing through research and learning, with nursing programs in Calgary, Medicine Hat and Qatar.
