intellectual disability nurses working internationally?Register Today!
- by jean canty Oct 6, '10I am an irish trained intellectual disability nurse (others call it,mental handicap,mental retardation or learning disabilities). I work in this sector and in nursing homes. I am wondering how an irish nurse with this degree would go about working in Vancouver, Canada and how to get a visa?

I'd recommend starting with the sticky thread located at the top of the Canadian forum.
***Internationally Educated Nurses: VERY IMPORTANT - READ THIS FIRST*** - Nursing for Nurses

First stop is meeting the province requirements and for that you need to be general trained with clinical and theory hours in Paeds, Obstetrics, Mental Health and general adult. A lot will depend on the province you apply to but generally you do need to be general trained however there are a couple of provinces that accept Mental health nurses. Getting work or immigrant visa will depend on what route you take and suggest a good read in this forum as much has been already written about Canada and the process you have to go through
