Hello, I was just curious how long the process is in becoming a nurse in Canada when I am a U.S. citizen. I plan to stay here in Las Vegas, Nv for two years then move to Canada. Does anyone have any advice or tips they can give me to make this process easier? I just have no idea who to reach out to in order to ask for such advice.

Thank You

Check the college of Registered Nurses website NNAS is what nurses have to go through if trained outside the country. Even though you passed NCLEX you still have to meet other requirements

Pick a province.  We're a big country.

One of the hardest to find work in.  There are others where it might be easier to find work.  Having said that, who know what the next four years will bring.  It’s election time and there will be cuts to healthcare not matter what the politicians are promising federally.  Provincially, Ontario and Alberta are in rough shape.
