I am an international nursing graduate and am interested in your program. Do you accept international applications?
International nursing graduates are eligible for the Learning Institute’s RN Bridging/Re-Entry Program when they have been referred by the Nova Scotia College of Nursing or the College of Registered Nurses and Midwives of Prince Edward Island. Learners in our specialty programs must be licensed in Canada.
Programs are designed to build upon entry level competencies to prepare learners to work in specialty areas. Programming for new graduates generally requires additional support for orientation and transition to the workforce. Learners interested in the Critical Care/Emergency/Perioperative programs should check the program's webpage to verify the minimum amount of recent experience recommended prior to taking the program. Please contact LearningInstitute@nshealth.ca.
