Statement on expanded opportunities for nurse practitioners in Alberta
Athabasca University educates more nurse practitioners than any post-secondary in Canada
“Athabasca University applauds these new opportunities for nurse practitioners to contribute to high-quality patient care in Alberta. This is an excellent example of the Nurse Practitioner Association of Alberta and the Government of Alberta working together to benefit patients by delivering highly specialized, advanced clinical care.
“AU educates more nurse practitioners than any other post-secondary in the country—one-third of Canada’s nurse practitioners are AU graduates. Nurse practitioners are an investment that increases access to specialist care for those in most need when and where they need it most.”
