I'm in need of some advice. I have just qualified with a BSc in Mental Health Nursing in Ireland. I am looking into making the move to Canada but having a tough time trying to find out what the process is to work as a nurse over there.
Given the current state of the Irish health system the prospects of getting a job here are zero at the moment and even if the jobs do become available they are trying to cut the salary. Basically i want to travel, and Canada has caught my attention. Can anyone recommend some sites that are recruiting graduates. Ideally i am looking for a position in Calgary.
Thanks in advance!!

Thanks for the reply! I am a mental health nurse so my experience is limited to mental health. That being said I have trained/worked in the adult mental health services and with the older adult so that requires knowledge of physical illness. Ideally i would be looking to work in the community or in an acute ward.
Also thank you for the links you sent, thats basically what i was looking for. Its very expensive to register, $200 for transcript assessment and $500 for the registration exam. Down side is thats its in May and i think thats the only sitting of it!
