To become a registered nurse only university degree is required.

To become a licensed practical nurse the education requirements vary considerably across the country and range from one to two years of college education.

In order to become a nurse and get a nursing license you must have graduated from an "approved" or "recognized" nursing program.

You can contact the college of nurses(our licensing bodies are called colleges) in the province that you want to be licensed in. They will tell you how to proceed.Basically they will evaluate your education and experience to determine if you are eligible to write the CRNE.You will not necessarily have to do any additional schooling. Best of luck.

If anyone else is wondering the same thing about this, what you need to do is search google "nursing schools canada". Numbers and addresses should come up. You can call these places and ask them the questions you have. They will be able to answer all your questions and help you so you can go to school.

Hi ladiesman,

It depends on the state. Different states in Canada require different credentials. It's best that you apply for eligibility to take the exam and the board of nurses will assess your education. If it's a match, then you will just take the exam and pass it. Most of the time, you'll need to take additional subjects and this means going back to nursing school to take these units.

The possibilities are limitless. Nursing offers both men and women a wide range of opportunities for career challenges, travel, professional development and the personal satisfaction of working in a caring profession that helps people to get well or to stay healthy.

If you wish to be a RN you should start with the College of RN's for Ontario and get eligibility to sit CRNE. Do not be surprised if the employer expects to see that before offering you a job. Most jobs I have seen have either stated passed CRNE or have eligibility to sit it. Process can take any length of time

Hi, there is a big possibility that requirement is true. There are countries, (and in your case, probably Canada) that require schooling first before one can be a registered nurse. I think it is just like getting a driver's license. Even if you are holding a professional driver's license from your native country, you still have to undergo certain tasks for you to qualify for a driver's license in the country you are currently in.
