Masters of Nursing: Nurse Practitioner

Our primary health care program prepares nurse practitioners to diagnose and treat common illnesses and injuries across the lifespan in settings such as primary care offices or community health centres. The program does not, however, prepare NPs to work in acute care settings or to focus on a clinical specialty.
