New for 2014: We have revised the admission criteria to open this program to health care professionals with a completed health-care related undergraduate honour degree and a minimum of two years' experience in a health-related field.

We welcome applications from health care professionals, including nurses, physicians, physician's assistants, physiotherapists, dentists, social workers, psychologists, etc.

This program is designed to help health care professionals meet the challenges associated with working with oncology and palliative care patients. The online delivery allows this program to be accessible to students across Canada and potentially worldwide. An additional simulation component will take place on-site at the Faculty of Nursing’s state-of-the-art, newly expanded facilities in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

We are currently recruiting students for Fall 2014 – part-time or full-time. We encourage you to review the program details, application information and view the brochure on our program webpage.
