Default Hi ladiesman,

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.
