Program details

The Master of Nursing degree builds on undergraduate education through the integration of theory, research, and practice. Emphasis is placed on developing ability to analyze, critique, and use research and theory to further nursing practice.

Expected duration: 2+ years

Tuition and fees: One year tuition, then continuing fees in subsequent years (refer to Graduate tuition and fees)

Students choose one of the following three streams.

Education stream

The Education stream prepares graduates for careers in education. A nurse educator has in-depth knowledge of teaching and learning related to education, either in nursing practice or nursing education. The theories of teaching and learning are explored in relation to student learning and teaching practices. Areas of focus within this stream are generally directed towards improving educational outcomes. Possible career opportunities for graduates of the education stream:

  • Clinical educator in an institution
  • Clinical/community education roles, such as diabetes educator
  • Instructor at a faculty/school of nursing
  • Doctoral studies

Administration stream

The Administration stream prepares graduates for careers in nursing management and administration. The nurse administrator provides leadership in a variety of settings, including practice, education, or government. Understanding the theories relevant to nursing leadership and other organizational practices enables the nurse administrator to provide leadership and strategic thinking in their practice arena. Areas of focus within this stream are generally directed towards improving organizational and process outcomes. Possible career opportunities for graduates of the administration stream:

  • Nurse manager
  • Nursing director
  • Chief nursing officer
  • Instructor at a faculty/school of nursing
  • Doctoral studies

Clinical stream

The clinical stream prepares graduates for clinical career opportunities including Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), as well as other roles within an institution or community setting. Areas of focus within this stream are generally directed towards improving patient or client outcomes.

A CNS has in-depth knowledge in a selected area of clinical practice and advances nursing knowledge, skills, judgment, standards and program development to enhance patient or client care. In practice, the CNS strengthens the link between nursing research and practice, and assists others in knowledge translation through the development of clinical guidelines and protocols. They promote the use of evidence, provide expert support and consultation and facilitate system change.

For full course descriptions, please visit the Academic Calendar.

Thesis and course-based Capstone Project

Students pursuing the thesis option in the Education, Administration or Clinical streams complete 21 credit hours, culminating in a thesis, in which they:

  • Identify and define a research problem(s) or question(s)
  • Actively engage in a systematic process to address the research question(s)
  • Provide evidence of mastery in a specialized area of nursing knowledge
  • Produce a scholarly written document
  • Competently defend the thesis in an academic and public forum

Students pursuing the course-based Capstone Project option in the Education, Administration or Clinical streams complete 21 credit hours plus six additional credit hours of electives, for a total of 27 credit hours, culminating in a Capstone Project. The Capstone Project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to analyze, interpret, apply and communicate knowledge acquired throughout their graduate program.

All required coursework must be completed prior to registering for the Capstone Project.

Flexible program options

Full-time and part-time options

A student is considered to be full time in the Administration, Clinical or Education stream if they take a minimum of 12 credit hours during the regular academic year.

Students must apply for part-time studies.

Evening classes may be available.

Advisors

You must have an advisor willing to accept you as a student to pursue graduate studies in nursing. 

Advisors currently accepting students

International applicants are not required to secure a faculty advisor prior to submitting their application to the Master in Nursing (administration or education stream). After the application is reviewed, international applicants will be contacted with a list of potential faculty advisors.

If you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree under the mentorship of a faculty researcher not listed, you are welcome to contact that faculty member directly to inquire about potential graduate positions.

Please review the researcher’s profile prior to contacting them, to ensure your research interest aligns with theirs. When you decide to contact a faculty member regarding a graduate position, please send them the following:

  • Curriculum vitae or resume
  • All academic transcripts from previous post-secondary institutions as well as the University of Manitoba (as applicable)
  • Descriptions of any previous research or teaching-related experience.

If you have contacted potential advisors and after several inquiries have not received a response, please consider this an indication that they will not be pursuing further conversation.

Applicants can also contact the Graduate Program Student Advisor at 204-474-6733 for more information about advisors.

The student-advisor relationship

In collaboration, the student and faculty advisor will discuss the student’s learning needs to determine the fit between advisor and student. The advisor will work with the student to devise a plan for their course of studies. Generally, the advisor will be the student’s thesis/committee chair or comprehensive examination chair. Students must meet, at a minimum, annually with their advisor. Any changes to program plan must be approved by the advisor.

The student-advisor relationship is important in assisting the student to navigate the university system. Students are responsible for initiating and maintaining regular communication with their advisor.

Students are also responsible for understanding and knowing the Faculty of Graduate Studies policies and regulations, as well as the Supplemental Regulations, which provide the guidelines for graduate study.

Admission requirements

To qualify for admission to the Master of Nursing program you must meet both the academic requirements and the non-academic requirements.

Academic requirements

To qualify for admission to the Master of Nursing program, you must have a minimum of:

  • 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.

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.

Non-academic admission requirements

Successful applicants must meet the College of Nursing’s non-academic requirements, which include immunizations, Criminal Records Search Certificate (including vulnerable sector search), Child Abuse Registry check, Adult Abuse Registry check and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification.

The non-academic admission requirements are as important as the academic requirements because your offer of admission to the College is provisional until you have submitted the non-academic admission requirements.

You must submit all documents to the College of Nursing by July 15.

How to apply

The Master of Nursing program accepts applications for the Fall Term.
