Post Graduate Certificate in Nursing Administration & Practice Co-op | Immigrate as a Nurse

There are quite a number of immigration pathways to Canada as a Nurse depending of course in your qualifications.  As a Registered Nurse, the following are the common options:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (Express Entry System)
  • Provincial Nominee Program 
  • Quebec Skilled Worker Program
  • Caregiver Program
However, if you are just a newly graduate nurse, without a job offer and with only a limited work experience, it will be very difficult, if not impossible, for you to qualify under those immigration programs.
