MRU dropping foreign nurse assessment programHead of nurses association says loss of unique service will impact workforce
Immigrants with nursing credentials will soon have a harder time getting licensed to work in Alberta.
Provincial funding for Mount Royal University's Internationally Educated Nurses Assessment program is being discontinued, school officials said.
About 240 nurses from other countries are assessed and registered through the program each year.
Please keep in mind before you make angry posts to this thread that this decision was not made by those Canadian nurses in Alberta but by Mount Royal University and the Government of Alberta.

Saw this, wonder what sort of impact it is going to have on IEN applications.
Love it when MRU says government and funding and government says decision by MRU
