Every province has a different approach to education. AB and ON have moved to the 2+year diploma. Several provinces have the one year approach.
So, you have to look at the maximum amount of material covered in the minimum amount of time and the scope of practice in the province where the education is obtained.
PNs from BC had (could still have?) a less intense A&P course than the AB curriculum. If they moved to AB, CLPNA required them to do "catchup" work to get their permit in AB.
Some provinces over prepare their nurses. When I went through, we did our four semesters with about one week off for a break between semesters. So I did two years worth of work in 56 weeks. It was a killer.
Currently, AB and ON PN graduates leave with first year academic Arts credits. So that added an extra semester onto the workload or it was integrated into the existing curriculum. I doubt that grads in BC and NF have these courses.
The exam covers the basic level entry skill set to work.
clearly outlines what is required to be eligible to write the exam.
But the student visa is the more troubling issue. Will the education here meet the OP's homeland requirements?
