ADN RN, should I just aim to be an RPN in Canada?

Hi all!

I got my ADN in 2015 and have been working as a med-surg and step-down unit RN for a little over a year. Working on immigrating to Canada to be with my significant other.

I see that RNs with BSNs are being told their education isn't comparable so I probably don't have a chance? Have any RNs qualified as RPNs though? If anyone went that route I'd really appreciate hearing about your experience.

Thousands of IEN RNs have qualified as RPNs in Ontario (see College of Nurses of Ontario, statistical reports, new members in the general class).
