The University of Alberta Faculty of Nursing is a diverse faculty with a rich history and solid reputation. Situated in a research intensive university, we are one of the largest nursing faculties in Canada and one of only six in Canada to offer a full range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
We have more doctorally-prepared faculty members than any other school in the west. We implemented the first graduate program in Nursing in Alberta in 1975 with our MN program, and in 1991 became the first Canadian nursing faculty to offer a fully-funded PhD program.
Since our founding in 1923 as Alberta's first university-based school of nursing, the Faculty of Nursing's aspirations and actions have been guided by core values drawn from the discipline of Nursing, the University community, and Canadian society.
