Thesis/Report stream

Master of Nursing

Students who register in this stream may have an opportunity to work collaboratively with a practice partner to meet their learning needs. The nature and scope of the project will be determined through a collaborative process involving the student, partner and a faculty member. Students also have the opportunity to complete a more traditional thesis.

Examples include:

  • Addressing a specific concern of nursing practice by engaging in policy development.
  • Developing a clinical pathway incorporating the best available evidence.
  • Collaborating with a practice partner to propose and complete an evidence-informed, action-oriented, collaborative, community-based intervention.

This stream is one of two available as part of the University of New Brunswick's Master of Nursing program.

The Thesis/Report stream is made up of five required core courses, four stream-specific courses and a thesis or final project. It is offered by distributed and distance learning to our sites in Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Humber College.
