Nursing in Nova Scotia

  1. 0
    Hello!

    I would like to know if RPN's (Registered Psychiatric Nurses) are recognized in Nova Scotia? I am planning on moving to NS and I think it would be in my best interests to bridge over from LPN before heading that way, but unsure if RPN is something I should do.

    Also, is there a distance learning program there that bridges LPN to BSN?

    Thanks

    It doesn't look that way, but I don't know for sure...here are the websites for the nursing Colleges.

    Good luck with whatever you choose.

    A lot of nurses I know have used Athabasca to obtain their BScN and enjoyed it. http://www2.athabascau.ca/programs/bnlpn/
