What will I learn?

This unique program prepares internationally educated nurses (IENs) for professional nursing practice in Canada. This program is designed for IENs who demonstrate fundamental knowledge-based nursing practice and are required by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) to renew and enhance nursing knowledge and skills, in preparation for nursing practice and licensure in Canada.

This program is designed to:

Prepare IENs to practice within the Canadian health care setting

Renew and enhance previously acquired knowledge and skills

Identify and address individual needs

Ensure graduates meet the professional practice requirements

Enable effective communication skills with patients and colleagues

Notes:

Clinical placements take place at any of the Lower Mainland hospitals between North Vancouver and Chilliwack. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from clinical experiences.

Seats will be offered to those who achieve a minimum number of knowledge-based practice competencies and no more than 50% unmet competencies.

Career Opportunities

Upon successful completion of the nursing program and success in passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), graduates will be eligible to apply to practice as a registered nurse in British Columbia.
