Message from the Dean

Our Faculty’s vision is Leading the Pursuit of Nursing Excellence. This statement signals our commitment to preparing excellent clinicians for registered nursing roles in the health care system and to transforming nursing practice to meet the health needs of Albertans and our global communities. Nursing roles in the health system are changing. Our programs prepare graduates to thrive and lead in these exciting times of complexity and change. Through innovations in teaching approaches and through our programs of nursing research, the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary transforms students into our next generation health care leaders.

More than 1000 undergraduate and graduate students are currently enrolled in the faculty. For over 40 years, we have been passionate about educating students in undergraduate, masters, doctoral and nurse practitioner programs. We are part of a dynamic campus environment of discovery, creativity and engagement. We have over 7500 University of Calgary nursing alumni across Canada and around the world.  Join us – and find your own transformation on the path to nursing!
