Why an MSN?

Nurses with graduate preparation provide leadership locally, nationally, and globally to meet humanity's most basic and pressing needs.

Extend your professional reach.

A Master of Science in Nursing will give you the graduate preparation you need to become a leader in professional nursing locally, nationally, and globally while meeting humanity’s most pressing needs.

There is no need to relocate, as the program has been built to fit around your working schedule and personal commitments. As a student, you can complete your studies while still working, whether you choose the fully online option or the blended learning option.

The program has been designed to promote a community of ‘nurse scholars’ and to extend your professional reach. As a graduate student, you will work closely with faculty who will help you select relevant courses to support your career goals.

Director's Message

Feature Card

Our Masters of Science (MSN) program in the School of Nursing at TWU provides you with the opportunity to engage a community of scholars, within the context of philosophical and spiritual integration.

Our program will challenge you to think deeply about the values that have shaped nursing knowledge; evaluating evidence for best practice; and critically thinking about the nursing professions’ most pressing needs for developing advanced leadership skills and excellence in scholarship in practice locally, nationally, and globally.

An exciting distinctive feature of our program is to participate in our health policy residency in Ottawa, Canada (our capital) to interface and learn “first-hand” from leaders in policy-making.
