I'll be very Thankful to you.
the new regulations for immigration to canada in the federal skilled workers categories have put lpn licensed practised nurse in the national occupational classification. it is an occupation that is in shortage in canada and immigration canada is accepting applications for lpns that can complete the other requirements for permanent residency through the fsw (federal skilled worker program). the new process should take between 6 months to 1 year.
the applicant should have at least one year of experience.
check the cic website for more information and also check the regulations for foreign lpns as far as licensure requirements/eligibility in the different provinces in canada and pratice. i believe lpns have to be licensed where they have completed their nursing program to be eligible for licensure in any of the provinces but check the right sources for accurate information (board of nursing's website and cic's website).
here is some info on how to become an alberta licensed lpn, so just do the same with other pronvinces and see what comes up and you can contact bow valley and norquest colleges directly for the accurate info.
[color=#ffffff]internationally educated nurses graduates of non-licensed practical nurse programs - out of country
applicants who have graduated from a health care program that is not a canadian practical nurse or an american practical/vocation nurse must complete a prior learning assessment and recognition
(plar) and practical nurse preparation before becoming a licensed practical nurse in alberta.
first, applicants are assessed by the colleges where the practical nurse program is provided: norquest college
(edmonton) and bow valley college
(calgary). a clinical placement is included in this process. from this assessment, applicants are given direction for steps that must be completed to become eligible to write the canadian practical nurse national registration exam (cpnre). please contact either norquest college or bow valley college and they will give you the documents required to begin the process.
the colleges will conduct a prior learning assessment and recognition
(plar) to assess your education and compare it with the alberta practical nurse program requirements. all applicants must complete a learning module called professional growth
and a supervised clinical placement. you will be introduced to the current role of the lpn and provided experience working within that role. the plar will identify any additional education you must complete. these arrangements will be made between yourself and the college.
upon successful completion of the plar, you will be granted a practical nurse credential and may apply to clpna to write the canadian practical nurse registration exam.
contact the below colleges to begin your prior learning assessment and recognition (plar). please explain you have completed health related studies and are seeking a plar with the goal of obtaining a practical nurse credential. you will be required to meet the college's entrance requirements and provide original documentation for the plar. a current criminal record check will be required.
