US RN Migrating to Ontario

  1. I currently live in Dayton Ohio, USA. I received my RN Diploma in July 1982. I have been working as a NICU Nurse since I graduated. I plan on moving to Kingston Ontario in late 2005 or early 2006. Besides becoming a permanent Canadian resident will I need to get a BSN degree and/or take the Ontario Nursing Boards so I can get a job?

    You will need a BSN and to take the CNATS (the Canadian nurses' exam). You can get all the info about registration from the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO).

    Welcome to Ontario Pam! You'll love it! Kingston is beautiful. Went there for band camp believe it or not. Yes...they do exist. Sigh.
