New master of nursing program coming to Dalhousie

In a first for Atlantic Canada, Dalhousie will be offering a master of nursing program in mental health and addictions this fall.

The province says there are 22 spots available, for either a two-year full-time student or three-year part-time student.

The program is open to nurses with two years of clinical experience in the field, within the past five years.

“The new master of nursing, mental health and addictions is another way we are growing our healthcare teams right here in Nova Scotia,” said Brian Comer, Minister of Addictions and Mental Health. “The new program will help nurses grow their clinical expertise to help Nova Scotians, as well as pass their knowledge to their fellow nurses who are building careers in mental health and addictions.”

Nova Scotia will spend $306,000 to support the program, with more funding to come in the future.

The University also offers a master of science in nursing as well as a PhD in nursing.

Applications for the new program close April 1.
