Hi everyone! I’m new to this site and have this burning question. I thought what better place to get some information than here!

I am a CNA in California who has just finished my AA with emphasis in science and my pre reqs to apply for nursing school. 

Although, I’m curious what it would take to transfer and go to nursing school in Canada? Has anyone had this experience or know anyone? 

Would it be easier to finish and get my RN here in California and then transfer? 

Thanks in advance :)

You will first need to check the school in Canada you wish to transfer to and see if they will take your credits.  It would appear that many will, however they may require some other courses before you can apply to a nursing school.

Yeah, I need to do a lot more research myself. But thought I would reach out here too if any one had personal experience to help clarify. 

Thanks for your input!

Moved to the International Nursing forum 

Nurse training will be expensive in Canada. Better to do your training where you are now then look at registration in Canada, especially if you have plans later on to return back to the US

Be aware that you need a BSN to work in Canada.

Most Canadian universities charge foreign students roughly double the fees that they charge Canadian students.

You also need to factor in how you are going to support yourself during those four years.  Often student visas have limits to the number of hours of paid employment the student can do

So then it would be easier to just do it all here first

Yes it would be easier to do your BSN there.
