About Us

For more than 20 years, OMNI College has proudly supported Internationally-Educated Nurses from around the world through their transition to becoming Canadian nurses.

The College is a government designated, private post-secondary education institution located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Founded in 1999, OMNI College was created by Mr. Ron Burke, a Canadian Registered Nurse.

Ron is a visionary who very early on recognized that there would be shortage of nurses in Canada. The statistics show the facts: Canada simply does not graduate enough nurses to keep up with our country’s aging and growing population.

Determined to find a solution, Ron welcomed the College’s first Internationally-Educated Nurses back in 1999.

Since then, nurses from around the world have continued to study with OMNI College, achieve their dreams of becoming licensed as Canadian nurses, and most have successfully immigrated permanently to Canada. Today, there are many communities of OMNI College alumni working as nurses all across the country.

  • It may have taken a while for me to become an RN here but the road to that journey was not that bad. The friends and the family I made along the way, and had brought me to where I am today. Indeed, this OMNI family has always been there for me and will always be something I will be forever grateful for. They had never ceased on instilling hope to us. Thank you, not just for being my gateway here in Canada but most of all, for opening the door towards the future I want for myself and my family. To my fellow international nurses, it is worth the wait and worth the pain, never lose hope and keep your faith!
