Exciting News for Internationally Educated Nurses who want to study in Canada!

We are excited to announce that the registration process for internationally educated nurses (IENs) in Nova Scotia has been simplified! As an IEN, you no longer need to go through the nursing assessment process to register as a nurse in Nova Scotia. 

I am thrilled to hear that, as of May 1, 2023, qualifying registered nurses holding current licensure in the Philippines, India, Nigeria, USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to apply directly to the Nova Scotia College of Nursing (NSCN) for RN licensure without applying to the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS). 


Eligibility Criteria
Have current licensure in good standing with one of the designated jurisdictions listed above.

Application Process
Complete an NSCN application.
Submit two pieces of identification.
Arrange for Verification of Registration (VOR) from your current regulatory body to be submitted directly to NSCN.
Submit proof of English Language Proficiency, if required
For nurses from outside of Canada, arrange for a criminal record check(s) (CRC) to be submitted directly to NSCN.

All applicants must successfully take the NCLEX-RN (if not already done so), however they may also be eligible to enter practice with conditional licence (CL) while attempting the exam.
