  1. Just wondering if nurses from the US could come to work in Canada.

    Yes, after passing the Canadian RN Exam (CRNE) and getting their license in the province in which they plan to work and securing a job offer and getting permission to work from immigration (thanks to NAFTA). Some provinces require the BSN, some do not.
