    There's no "maybe" about it. You WILL NOT get a visa to come to Canada to work as a practical nurse. There is no shortage of PNs right now and the only classification of nurse currently being approved for immigration is the RN.

    I wasn't knocking PN's either. You're work is just as important.
    She might have more options in the future and a better salary with the BScN, RN title, though.
