Master of Nursing - Nurse Practitioner
Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner
The College of Nursing offers Registered Nurses an opportunity to pursue a Master of Nursing Degree, with an advanced clinical practice focus (Nurse Practitioner). After successful completion of 33 credit units of study and a minimum of 720 practicum hours, students are eligible to write the national Canadian Nurse Practitioner Examinations: Family/All Ages (CNPE:F/AA or other jurisdictionally approved Family Nurse Practitioner licensing exam.
The Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner program is designed so students can complete it within five consecutive terms or part-time over three years.
Courses are offered distributively using a blended learning model with both live webconferenced seminars (synchronous) and online delivery (asynchronous). Students may attend synchronous classes onsite at one of the College of Nursing Campuses (Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Regina) or join from their home computer. This live seminar format allows distance students to actively participate in classroom discussions. Asynchronous online classes do not have a set class time and work is completed on students own schedule, within the parameters of course timelines.
