    If you're already a practicing RN in another jurisdiction, then you are eligible for registration in Alberta. If you are an internationally educated RN, though, you will ahve to undergo a "substantively equivalent competency" screening to ensure that your education meets Alberta standards. If you are only just beginning your nursing education, you will need a degree. There are many other posts on the forum that can expand on this information. Have a look and see what other questions you have that aren't answered and come on back.
