This program is for Internationally-Educated Nurses (IENs) who do not need language and medical terminology training, are who are ready to begin their Canadian nursing training right away. Should you require language support, view the details of our full Canadian Nursing Review program (18 months) here.
OMNI College really understands the needs of Internationally-Educated Nurses because they assess each student and determine what they specifically need to practice and work on.
I gained so much from OMNI, among them the most precious thing I got was I passed my RN exam. The exam was extremely tough, but with the training and practice I got from OMNI, made the exam a simple one.
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!

To become a nurse in Canada, the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) provides a streamlined assessment service for Internationally-Educated Nurses interested in applying for nurse registration in Canada. All applicants must apply first through the NNAS. OMNI College will help advise you in your application process.
After assessment by the NNAS, the provincial regulatory body may require further assessment or courses (in addition to the training by OMNI College), which may create delays in your process. All applicants to OMNI are interviewed by an OMNI Advisor, so we encourage all applicants to discuss their personal timing plan during their interview.
