Will depend on the province and how long ago you trained. But generally I believe if trained in the last 4-5 years expected to be BSN

She was a fairly new grad and said all provinces wanted a BSN. Like SD said, it may deoend on when you graduated.I'm an American RN but don't have my BSN. Is it required?

When did you graduate?
- May 5, '12 by Daisy_08To work as an RN yes. You maybe able to get an RPN/LPN license. I know of someone who graduated a long time ago in the states and they did not grandfather her in. I think they only grandfather'd you in if you already had your Canadian license.
