The road to becoming a nurse in Canada is a complex journey. It is not simply a matter of going through a process to transfer your nursing license, as nursing in Canada is very different from the nursing you may be used to. Often even the most experienced IENs come to Canada and find the transition extremely challenging.
The Canadian Nursing Review Program will not only provide you with the skills required to meet Canadian standards and language in preparation of achieving your nursing license, it will also set you up with the confidence and skills to ensure you are job-ready for your employer as a nurse in Canada.
Program length: 18 months
Note: students who have already achieved an English score level higher than IELTS Academic 6.5 or equivalent may qualify for the 12-month ADVANCED Canadian Nursing Review program

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.
