about equivalency for transcript

  1. 0
    Hello,
    I have recently transferred to a nursing school. I am planning to be a Canadian RN in the near future. I would appreciate it if anybody can respond to the following questions.

    1. Will CNO accept my nursing bachelors degree even though I am a transfer student? I expect to skip some general subjects. Is it going to be equivalent to what CNO requires as long as I have a bachelors?

    2. I am studying nursing in a non-English country, which means I must take IELTS to become a Canadian nurse. Will there be any disadvantages to apply to CNO simply because I am an international graduate?

    Thanks.

    The CNO has their own criteria if your nursing education outside Canada would be considered. Since you are entering their territory, you can't do much but to stick to their process and requirements. I think the IELTS exam is pretty standard for all professionals intending to practice in any Canadian territory.
