*NEW* Online PhD Cohort - Fall 2015
June 30, 2014 - Exciting news!
The flexible delivery of the PhD program will be replaced by a cohort approach to online delivery. By being part of a cohort, students will have the opportunity to develop a network of colleagues with whom they will be working together through the PhD program. The first cohort will begin program activities in Spring 2015. Cohorts will be admitted every second year (i.e. 2015, 2017, 2019). Deadline for applications to the online cohort is February 1, 2015.
This change does not affect students who opt to study on the University of Alberta campus, or those already enrolled as flexible delivery students.

Nursing Graduate Education
The Master of Nursing program was established in 1975 and in 1997 the focus of the program changed to Advanced Nursing Practice. The new program prepares nurses for leadership roles in nursing and health care. The theoretical, experiential, and research basis for practice helps students demonstrate specialized clinical skills. Students in the master's program can enroll on a full or part-time basis in either a thesis or course-based route.
The PhD in Nursing program began in 1991 and is the first funded Canadian nursing PhD program. The goal of this program is to prepare nurses for excellence in the development and organization of nursing knowledge. Students become leaders in the nursing profession as they focus on developing and testing nursing theory, advancing and perfecting nursing knowledge, identifying nursing practice phenomena and designing practice systems relevant to the nursing discipline.
Important Measles Information
On April 29, 2014, Alberta Health Services declared a measles outbreak in the Calgary, Central and Edmonton Zones. As such, it is important that you are immune to measles.
Students in health science faculties and healthcare workers, regardless of year of birth, are considered immune only if one of the following has been confirmed:
1. Two documented doses of measles vaccine at appropriate time intervals, or
2. Laboratory confirmation of measles disease, or
3. Serological evidence of measles immunity (measles IgG positive)
It is your responsibility to ensure you meet one of these criteria. Please be reminded that, as you are going to placements (e.g. Alberta Health Services/Covenant/community sites, etc.), you may need to provide evidence of your immunity if requested, so please have this paperwork ready.
