As a student we trust that you will make the most of your time with us and within the dynamic university environment. Your experience can be enriched by participating in seminars, colloquia and public lectures. The university provides a wealth of learning opportunities and experiences with offerings from the arts, sporting activities, and learned discussion.
Orientation sessions for new students are held as each term begins. It is very important that you attend an orientation to ensure that you are familiar with the curriculum, program structure, timetabling, and program policies. Library orientation is provided at this session and at other scheduled times and locations. Please refer to the Library Instruction Centre.
The NP Program Coordinator, Fairleth McCuaig is available to assist you before you register and throughout the year as you make decisions related to your studies and progression. Fairleth McCuaig will clarify program requirements and policies, and address questions of academic concern. Please telephone 604-822-7463 or email: Fairleth.McCuaig@nursing.ubc.ca. We encourage you to consult the program overview and timetable.
Returning to the university environment can be stressful. It may be many years since you last attended classes, were required to complete essays, or had to find your way around a complex learning environment. You may find the tools developed by UBC's LEAP program to be useful including the Self-Assessment Quiz and study tips. You will find other important information about graduate study, university 'survival skills' and career development on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website.
Opportunities for scholarship and other support are available, from a variety of sources, to MN-NP students.
