Post-Masters Diploma: Nurse Practitioner

The Post-Masters Diploma: Nurse Practitioner (PMD:NP) is offered by the Faculty of Health Disciplines. The program prepares nurses to assume a broader role in the provision of health services to clients of all ages as family nurse practitioners.

Please note: Athabasca University is currently unable to accept applications from British Columbia for the Master of Nursing: Nurse Practitioner and Post-Masters Diploma: Nurse Practitioner programs. Unfortunately, due to the limited availability of clinical placements in the province, students are unable to complete program requirements. AU’s Faculty of Health Disciplines is working with the B.C. Ministry of Health to resolve this issue and plans to resume admission of B.C.-based students as soon as the practicum situation improves.


Information effective Sept. 1, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2021.
