This thread contains information about nursing registration in canada for overseas nurses, canadian practical nurse registration examination, canada nursing registration ielts requirements, how to become registered nurse in Canada, salary of a registered nurse in Canada, internationally educated nurses in bc, canada board of nursing license verification, registered nurse bc etc

This is an ultimate guide to nursing registration in canada for overseas nurses. It is also meant to serve as information exchange thread where those in various stages can share their experiences and Application timelines in order to support one another.

Nursing is a regulated profession in Canada just like  most countries so anybody who wishes to practice as a nurse in Canada must be registered with the Nursing board. Canada has 10 Provinces and 3 Territories (Provinces are -Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. The three territories are Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon.) thus registration of overseas trained nurses is handled by each Province  and Territory.

Overview of Registration Process


In order to begin your licensure application process to any Province, follow the process below : 

NOTE: I will create  threads for each Province containing all step-by-step instructions, requirements and other things worthy of note later.

1. Review the Requirements for Registration for Internationally-Educated Nurses for the Province you do like to register.

2. Ensure you meet the requirements and gather the required documents, scanned and saved on your computer.

3. Create an account with the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), review your application, make the payment and submit your application.

4. When the assessment process is completed, you will receive confirmation from NNAS that the Advisory Report has been completed.

5. Proceed to apply to the province you have selected by filling the application form, submitting the required documents and paying for the application.

6. Wait for the decision of the Nursing board

7. If favourable sit for professional registration exam, pass meet other requirements such as jurisprudence exam and residency or authorization to work.

8. Pay the registration and licensing fees
