Steps to be a nurse in Canada?

  1. I'm a registered nurse here in the Philippines. I wanna try my luck in Canada but I want to know how can I be a nurse in Canada? Like starting from how can I leave the Philippines until being a nurse in Canada. I've heard of COLLEGE OF ONTARIO. But I still don't know the process. It's a bit complicated to me. Or if you have any suggestion how to get to Canada. Thanks in Advance!

    1. Canada will only allow maximum of 500 foreign nurses to migrate per country annually.
    2. assessment minimum score of 67 points ( e.g. age, work experience, education, marital status, # of children )
    3. IELTS band minimum score of 7 each category ( reading, writing, listening ).
    4. mandatory 2 years bridging before you are allowed to write CRNE
    5. May work as PSW ( or CNA in the U.S.) $20/ hr
    6. assessment of your credentials may take 1 to 2 years.
    7. average CRNE passing rate for foreign grads ( IEN ) is 40%
    8. Very competitive job market

    Good luck. Cheers !
