    I think that RNs from the Philippines should apply to credential as LPNS first, as the 4 year degree from the Philippines is assessed by many qualification assessment agencies (IQAS in Alberta for example) as being roughly equivalent to 2.5-3 year nursing diploma in Canada. There may be a better chance of getting a job in Alberta, especially in the rural areas and northern communities such as Slave Lake or Fort McMurray. The similarity between the RN and LPN role is roughly a 70% overlap.Predictability of client outcome may determine which nurse ( RN or LPN), will care for which clients: a fresh pacemaker versus an established pacemaker, for example. Interestingly, approximately 40% of Canadian RNs have a basic preparation of a 2 or 3 year diploma, and are still practising as RNs.(the entry to practice now of course is a 4 year BSN).The LPN curriculum ( in Alberta and some other provinces) is an enriched version of the previous RN 2 year diploma, and it includes university level courses in English literature, Anatomy and Physiology, Health Education, Sociology and Psychology. Also included is an Adult Physical Assessment courses which was not included in the previous RN 2 year diploma. LPN is classified as a professional nurse in Alberta under the Health Professions Act.

    You don't need a company to do this. Where in Canada do you want to live and work in?
