IENs jobs in Canada
- 0Mar 7, '13 by wagon198What are the jobs of IENs in Canada? Did you take up some programs to have certificates in order to have a job that you want like Health Care Aid or Nursing Attendant? We all know that the process for RN is way too long. So while waiting, what are your current or previous jobs?

Im in BC and here you dont need to study for the health care assistant position (care aide) but you do need to register as care aide. Registration requires assessment from ICES. Most authorities now require care assistants to be registered. Private ones may or may not. A lot of IENs i know worked as care aide or LPN while they wait for their RN registration.
If you plan to work as an LPN you need to apply and take an examination.
Others also worked as home support.
I am an IEN and I did starbucks though
