From foreign BSN to Master degree in Canada


Dear Nurses

I am a RN in Canada and I hold BSN degree from Israel. As I know College of nursing of ON issued me a Canadian Licence but it has not dealt with the academic part of my education.

So my question is, if I want to study towards a Master degree in Canada, will I need to go through International Qualifications Assessment Services (IQAS) or World Education Services or any other institution to qualify for the Master of Nursing program?

Did somebody have experience applying to a Canadian University with a foreign academic degree? Could you please share your experience.

The question is about the acceptability of a foreign academic degree in Canada

thank you in advance

The university providing the course is the arbiter of that sort of thing. The admissions office will tell you what you need to know. My instincts tell me that you'll have to jump through some hoops.
