Associate Dean, Graduate Programs:

Dr. Donna Martin

 As the Associate Dean, Graduate Programs, I invite you to explore the options available for graduate studies within the College of Nursing. With mounting evidence about the benefits of advanced practice nursing and its association with positive patient outcomes, this is the perfect time to begin your journey in graduate studies!

The overall goals of our graduate programs are to promote leadership and influence nursing practice and health care through critical inquiry and knowledge translation. We offer an innovative learning environment that fosters personal and professional development, appreciation for diversity, mentorship, critical thinking and reflection, and the development of collaborative partnerships in education, research, health care delivery and service. We utilize a student-centered approach to teaching and learning with blended delivery (online and in-class seminars) that includes flexible programming to achieve the programs’ goals.

The Master of Nursing Program affords students the opportunity to focus their studies by choosing 1 of 4 streams: 

  • Nursing education
  • Clinical nurse specialist
  • Administration or 
  • Nurse Practitioner.

The Doctoral Program in Nursing develops outstanding scholars and we celebrated our first graduate in 2017!

Currently, 113 graduate students are enrolled and they are supported by a team of nationally and internationally renown, leading edge nurse scientists, including 3 Research Chairs. Over the past 6 years, our faculty has acquired $11.9 million in research funding with 383 peer-reviewed publications. The College has clinical practice and research links with other universities nationally and internationally and with a number of research institutes in Manitoba. The College has a strong commitment to the Indigenous community, to accessibility and diversity, and to a wide range of practice environments. As well, the Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research is a rich resource for all graduate students including opportunities for research internships along with travel and research awards.

We welcome all inquires from potential students and faculty. Please explore our website and contact us for further information.
