Thesis/Report stream

The thesis/report stream involves a blend synchronous and asynchronous online learning. This stream can be completed on either a full or part-time basis. Intake for this stream occurs each year in the fall term.

Full-time students in the thesis/report stream complete a total of 18 credit hours (6 courses) in year 1 and thesis/report work in year 2. Part-time students in the thesis/report stream complete a total of 18 credit hours (6 courses) in years 1, 2, and 3 and focus on the completion of their thesis/report work in year 4. Part-time students generally complete 1 course per term and as their personal schedules allow, some complete up to a maximum of 2 courses per term. See program courses and course sequencing. All students in this stream must complete a thesis or report.

Students in this stream have the opportunity to engage and work collaboratively with a practice partner to complete their thesis/report. The nature and scope of collaborative projects will be determined through a cooperative process involving the student, partner and a faculty member. 

Examples of collaborative projects 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.
  • Scoping review of current evidence focused on topic that is of relevance to practice partner.
