Canadian Nursing ? HELP : (

  1. 0 Hi everyone

    I have a question: I am doing a diploma Nursing Course( Child Branch )here in London , UK. My husband and I are interested in Moving to Canada sometime after I finish my course I have been researching about canadian nursing but I am confused as to how my UK Registered nurse accredidation will transfer to Canada. I know I have to take an exam but what else do I need , how will it be classified in Canada?? Any canadian nurses out there wanna give me some advice

    Canadian requirements are essentially the same as the US. In the UK, you are trained as a specialist, but the US and Canada require that you be trained as a generalist. You will need to do the make-up courses to qualify to work in either country.

    There are already many threads posted about this under the Canadian section, if you just do a search on this forum.

    Good luck.....

    Not to mention the fact that some provinces are moving to only recognize nurses with a Bachelor's degree. You can contact the registering body in the province you are interested in and they can give you all the info. For BC, it's I think and they have links to the registration bodies across the country.
