The UVic School of Nursing is dedicated to excellence in accessible and innovative undergraduate and graduate nursing education, research initiatives, and professional activities. The School is committed to generating knowledge, advancing the nursing profession and discipline, and enhancing nursing practice to improve health for individuals, families, community, and society. Through collaborative partnerships among educators, students, health practitioners, researchers, and policy developers, we strive to support health and social change.
The School of Nursing Graduate Education Programs are based in a philosophical model that attends to coherence among and between ontological, epistemological, ethical, and practice dimensions. This model is fostered by values of openness, diversity, scholarship, and service related to human health.
Our School’s faculty are widely recognized for their contributions to the advancement of nursing as a scientific discipline and practice profession through research, leadership, practice, teaching, publications and presentations. A comprehensive listing of nursing faculty is located at <www.nursing.uvic.ca>.
All teaching faculty, as well as students, have the benefit of working with a skilled group of professional and support staff.

The School of Nursing offers a number of graduate education opportunities. Students may enrol in one of four options through the School of Nursing directly and may apply for double master’s degrees in Nursing and Health Information Science:
Nurses with a strong interest in health and social service policy can enrol through the Faculty of Human and Social Development for a Master of Arts through the Studies in Policy and Practice in Health and Social Services Program (see this page).
Applicants to interdisciplinary graduate programs identifying nursing as one of their disciplinary areas are welcomed and encouraged to contact the Associate Director of Graduate Programs (Graduate Adviser) in the School of Nursing as well as the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The University of Victoria School of Nursing is uniquely situated in the Faculty of Human and Social Development. This faculty consists of the Schools of Social Work, Child and Youth Care, Public Administration and Health Information Sciences, as well as the Indigenous Governance Program, the Institute for Dispute Resolution and the Interdisciplinary Studies in Policy and Practice Graduate Program. Additionally, the School of Nursing provides the opportunity to pursue scholarly links with the University Centre on Aging, the Centre for Youth and Society and the Centre for the Study of Religion and Society. Off campus, we are linked with research centres at the University of British Columbia, including the Institute for Health Promotion Research, the Human Early Learning Partnership and the W.
