Bridging programs for IENs in Canada

  1. Hi all, in trying to find out more on Info on SEC assessments and bridging program's to enable British trained nurses to gain a licence in Canada. Does anyone with first hand experience have any info they can share? I see from other posts at the majority of UK nurses are been asked to sit the SEC assessment pertaining to mental health and paediatrics, however has anyone been required to undertake a bridging program? What was required, I myself have a Bsc not higher diploma and I am really hoping this might edge it so I don't need to be assessed or undertake a bridging program but that could be naivety on my part

    Moved to nurse registration as this refers to internationally educated nurses.

    I have been reading on some forums that not every IEN is required to sit an SEC assessment?
