Best Province for NPs

Specializes in Family Nurse Practitioner.

I am researching the immigration process to Canada from the U.S. We are looking to make a permanent move. A friend suggested Ontario, Alberta, or British Columbia as the best choices for a NP. Is there one that you might suggest? I am a DNP certified Family Nurse Practitioner by both the AANP & ANCC. Any suggestions are appreciated.

You need to contact the college of nurses to find out about transferring credentials. Our system is vastly different from the US and your NP credentials likely won't be automatically transferable.

Contact the Province you're interested in and request to have your credentials assessed. The College of Nurses in that Province will provide you with additional information on licensing.

Hello! Congratulations on your graduation and certifications from both boards! I am interested in attending Loyola University. My GPA was a 3.1 undergrad. It was 2.8 nursing only. Any advice would help!
