How to immigrate to Canada as a Nurse

COVID-19, with its newfound Omicron virus, is casting a heavy burden on the healthcare services that were already dealing with a lack of nurses before the pandemic began. The hospitals are in immense need of nurses. They would be suffering more labor requirements in the upcoming years as the tired and overdone healthcare workers resign, which brings a need for the hospitals to recruit international-trained nurses.

Immense labor scarcity in healthcare means new job opportunities for nurses

Ottawas’s Job bank employment website reported the lack of 36,500 nurses from 2019 to 2028 before the widespread of COVID-19.

The circumstances have become even more dreadful now. 19,200 new jobs in Canada have opened a door for nursing professionals in February

At a higher level of the wage scale, the annual wage earned by a nurse in the Canadian territory of Nunavut is $169,045, depending on 37.5 hours of the workweek. In comparison, the yearly salary of the nurses in Canada is $78,000, depending on the conventional workweek.

The International citizens with the eligibility to work in Canada as nurses make use of their skills to look out for jobs to attain the permanent residency provided by the economic immigration programs at the provincial and government levels, with the help of the Express Entry procedure, Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) or the Skilled Worker Program in Quebec.

The nurses can quickly get through the government skilled worker program with the Express Entry Program after their Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) profile points are highly sufficient.

*Know your eligibility to Canada with the help of the Y-Axis Canada Immigration Points Calculator. 

The nurses are eligible to enter Canada with the help of the Skilled Worker Program in Quebec if they attain 50 points or above on the province’s selection grid.

Every province in Canada has its PNP that operates to provide permanent residence.

The nurses who are registered for nursing, psychiatric nursing, and licensed practical nursing who possess a University bachelor’s in nursing, post-graduate nursing, and post-secondary diplomas are all welcomed to Canada.

International nurses must have their credentials approved

The nursing professionals find it less complicated to  immigrate to Canada. The first step for them is to have their educational certificates examined to check if they match the Canadian standards.

The Canadian government acknowledges five organizations for the assessment of international academic certification:

  • World Education Services (WES)
  • International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS)
  • Comparative Education Service (CES)
  • International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS), and;
  • International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES)

The second step in the procedure for the International citizen seeking to immigrate to Canada to work as a nursing professional is to build a profile on the NNAS application website page that needs:

  • The submission identity along with the original stamped documents
  • A graduated nursing education form
  • Provide the nursing registration form
  • The nursing employment form and,
  • the potential applicant for immigration’s IELTS language testing results.
