The University of Alberta's Faculty of Nursing has a reputation built on excellence. Situated in one of Canada's top five research universities, we are one of the largest nursing faculties in the country and unique as the only Canadian member of the Hartford Centers for Gerontological Nursing Excellence.

We have been a pioneer in Canadian nursing education. We implemented the first Master of Nursing program in Western Canada in 1975 and began the first fully-funded Nursing PhD program in Canada in 1991. Today, as one of only six in Canada to offer a full range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs, we continue to play a leading role in the education of tomorrow's nurses.

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.
