Dal offers new Master of Nursing in Mental Health, Addictions

Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Health will launch a Master of Nursing, Mental Health and Addictions program this Fall. The program was designed for Nova Scotia nurses who are currently working in mental health and addictions. Dal’s School of Nursing Director Dr Ruth Martin-Misener explained that the program will “deepen [nurses’] clinical and leadership expertise, provide valuable advanced credentials and prepare them for rewarding career opportunities in advanced nursing practice, leadership, education and management/administration.” Students can complete the program in two years of full-time studies or three years of part-time studies. Dal states that this is the first program of its kind in Atlantic Canada.
