Hi, and welcome to BE. What's your planned visa route and would you be the principal applicant or your husband? Work experience requirements will vary depending on that.

Those in the know will be along to help shortly with what you'd need to actually be able to work as a nurse in Canada, be prepared for a long and expensive process, if you do a search of the forum you'll find tons of threads with more info about it.

Best of luck.

Hello,

well I am hoping to go as the main visa applicant as I have the skills nor does my husband. I am not sure what visa I could go with to be honest with you?

thank you.

OK, so that's your first step, check to see if you would qualify for a visa without a job offer/sponsorship. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...nada-tool.html You may not qualify for a visa until you've worked as a nurse for a year, but it will depend on what you've done previously for a job and which visa route you qualify for, if it says no then answer it as if you've worked as a nurse for a year and see if that changes it. If it asks you about English exam results, then just assume max points for now as a native speaker, it's only to give you an idea. What does your husband do and is he by any chance younger than you? It's just that unfortunately your age will go against you.

And one more thing, do you have a nursing degree or diploma? I believe it makes a difference as to where you can work, so may be worth mentioning so other nurses can advise on that.

1. Your difficulty in qualifying will be your age. As you will only get 45 points at the age of 40.

Getting registered as a RN in Canada with UK training is long and expensive with the likelihood of having to complete make up courses as Canadian training is general unlike the UK that is specialized. Also CNO is notorious for taking over 12 months on applications from outside Canada and jobs are not easy although some will depend where in Ontario you want to live. Expect to start as a casual nurse first if lucky. Suggest a search for the threads on nursing in this forum

Hey,
I just posted my experience in one of the other threads... I'll try link it, post #96 https://britishexpats.com/forum/cana...-905062/page7/

I have spent a ton of money both on my visa application, funds in my bank to show immigration (to support a household of 2 people for 6 months) and now taking courses at around $1000 each (4 in total).

I'm happy to help with any questions as I've done the whole process, from visa to nursing (although working on the nursing part...3 years later).

Laurie
