Specializes in Complex pedi to LTC/SA & now a manager. Has 13 years experience.

Moved to Nurse Registration to elicit further response. It also depends on the country of your education. Enrolled nurse is often not sufficient for immigration purposes. Canada does not utilize enrolled nurses there are RPN (registered practical nurse) or LPN (licensed practical nurse (depending on the province) that is a 2 year program and RN which is a 4 year bachelor's degree.

You would have to check the registration body for the country you wish to be licensed in. For Australia it is APHRA. For Canada it is the college of nurses for the province in which you wish to live and practice (such as CNO = is for the province of Ontario)

Also RN is not a degree but a license status. RN's may have a BSN, ASN, diploma, MSN it depends on the country of education.
