Need Help

  1. Hello There,
    I am currently pursing a RN program in Missouri, USA. I was wondering if some one can tell me whether i can practice in Canada with my license or do i need to get another license in Canada. What is the process?

    You need to pass Canadian boards, just as if a Canadian were to come here. They are required to take the NCLEX exam.

    You need to check individually with the province that you wish to get your license in. They have different requirements, some are now requiring a BSN for licensure, some do not as of this moment.

    I agree with Suzanne 100%.

    The difference I have found between the two countries is that Canadian licenses seem to take longer to process, in my experience. And, they can be a little more demanding.
