Emmigration to Canada

  1. I am currently doing my Adult nursing training, a diploma to be precise, and will be graduating next year April. I am looking forward to going back to Uni Sep/Oct 2013 for my top-up. My query is, I am in dilemma of choosing bewtween doing a Bsc Nursing or going in for Bsc Midwifery shortened programme. My ultimate goal is to migrate to Canada, and I will like to pursue a route that will aid my success in this and also allow me to register in Canada as a RN with ease.

    I am looking at midwifery, hoping that will bridge the gap of obstetrics, and paedatrics that UK Adult nursing training lacks. I am aware that psychiatric experience will still be lacking, but something is better than nothing I think.

    I will appreciate any form of advice or share of experience from everyone. If there is anyone who has gone through this, every information will be highly appreciated.

    "something is better than nothing" is wrong. You have to have the hours required by the provincial colleges.

    Suggest you read some of the "stickies" on this topic.

    These questions have all been answered before if you use the search feature and the government of Canada website.

    Your transcripts have to show clinical and theory hours in Paeds and Obstetrics as well as Mental Health and Adult general. Doing midwifery will not cover Paeds

    Thank you Silverdragon102. I might as well just stick to Bsc Nursing since I can do that part time while working full time, unlike it being the other way round if I have to do Midwifery.
