The University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Nursing will be the first in the province to offer a doctoral program.
“This program will prepare researchers who will work to improve health care, health policy, and health care delivery for Manitobans,” said Dr. Dauna Crooks, Dean of the Faculty of Nursing. “Graduates will be clinician scientists, faculty, policy analysts, and administrative researchers. As such, the possibilities for the province of Manitoba are endless.”
The program will integrate areas of philosophy of science and knowledge translation along with health care services, systems, and policy research as a foundation to nurture health researchers within the discipline of nursing.
