- OMNI College was created by a Registered Nurse: The College was founded in 1999 by Mr. Ron Burke, a Canadian Registered Nurse, who is passionate about nursing and education. As an RN himself, he was able to create, build and develop the College with the firsthand familiarity of what kind of training Nurses and healthcare professionals truly need in order to succeed in the workforce.

“My instructor gave me not only plenty of nursing knowledge, but also her super emotional support. I will never forget her. I also met many international nurses who had the same goal as mine, and I learned about their different cultures. We shared information, feelings, our experiences being new to Canada, and we also enjoyed some great parties together! The most important thing I gained from OMNI was my self-confidence as a Canadian nurse – I am so happy now! For any student considering OMNI College, I would say to them that if you have the will there is always a way. OMNI College will help you become the next Canadian nurse!!” – Suzie Kang, RN, originally from South Korea
