The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary ensures excellence in graduate education and research. Join us in a vibrant community of collegiality, learning and scholarship. Our Graduate Program applauds inquiry, encourages innovation and promotes leadership. It inspires research and aims to take our students a step above into all areas of advanced nursing practice. Our mission is to shape practice through investigation and participation in emerging health care systems. As a graduate student, expect to question, explore and stretch all the areas in which you nurse. Our success rests on a strong program combining research, education, scholarship and leadership.

Inquiry is a cornerstone of our graduate programs. Research priorities focus on two areas:

  • issues related to professional education and health service delivery.
