Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner (PHCNP) Graduate Diploma


Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study

The admission requirements for the Graduate Diploma as a Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner (PHCNP) are a completed Master’s degree with a minimum B+ average and at least two years in clinical practice out of the past five years. Those with a completed Master’s degree in Nursing may enter the PHCNP Consortium course phase and be granted a Graduate Diploma upon completion of the seven NP courses. Since the PHCNP courses are offered every year, students can expect to complete the courses within 12 months of full-time study. Part-time students have two years to complete the PHCNP courses. Once the PHCNP courses have been completed successfully, students are eligible to write their RN (Extended Class) exams. For more information about the PHCNP courses, see http://np-education.ca or http://fhs.mcmaster.ca/gradnursing/phcnp.html
