Follow our step-by-step guide to understand your options and requirements:

Different provinces in Canada have specific requirements for IENs. Visit the official websites of the nursing regulatory bodies in your desired province to familiarize yourself with these requirements.

Before applying, ensure your qualifications and experience meet Canada’s minimum requirements. Credential evaluations are often conducted by the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) or the nursing regulatory body in your chosen province.

Canada requires IENs to be proficient in either English or French. Take a language proficiency test like IELTS, CELBAN, or TEF to meet the requirements.
