Obtaining a license to practice nursing in Canada


Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Hi, I am a registered nurse here in the Philippines, and I want to work in Canada. I am confused because, I read online job ads and they say that I have to be registered with the province where I wish to work, and when I checked out the registration requirements that I need for that province, they say I have to have a license. So I want to ask how exactly and where do I apply for a license to work as a registered nurse in Canada? I checked out the net but all I got were more job ads. Please help me.

Each province will have it's own requirements for IEN (International Educated Nurses) as mentioned in previous post you need to decide which province you wish to live and work and see what is required. Also do a search because there are several threads in this forum discussing Canada
