Hi Michelle,

I am currently in the 2nd of my adult nurse training, and i am also interested in moving to Canada (Vancouver to be precise) when I qualify.
Having said this, I have done some research, here and there, and have also been told that it may be necessary to make up hours or take additional training in paed/ mental health due to the nature of us specialising per branch here in the UK.

I don't think it is as simple as qualifying and jetting out to Canada. I would suggest definately upgrading to the degree in your 3rd year if your uni allows this, and im sure any province in Canada will require you to undertake minimum post qualifying experience.

Good luck, the training is extremely hard but it'll be worth it!

Hi Canuck,

I did adult nursing (qualified in 1995), have just gone through the whole process of getting my transcripts verified in BC, which involves applying to your nursing school in England (once you have qualified and are registering with the NMC equivilant in your chosen province) to provide evidence of the theory and clinical practice which you have covered in your training.

CRNBC (BC's regulatory body) did query my theory and practice because the mother and child box wasnt ticked (which is obviously our maternity placement) therefore i had to contact my nursing school to say i had done an 8 week placement in maternity along with all the theory...the bottom of it was its because its called something different in canada...so my nursing school had to send a new form with all boxes ticked!!!

my advice would be to get as much exposure as you can on your clinical placements...keep your own log of where you have been and the dates then you can argue the case if need be.

good luck

Hi all,

We received our visa's today so are now planning our move to Calgary, my wife is a nurse and will be working either at the Foothills or Rockyview. Has anyone got any tips/hints for her?

Also we are looking at property in haysboro at present is this a good neighbourhood? How long is the commute to Foothills? I know Rockyview is very close.

Anyhow thanks for any response offered, its been a long time planning and now its here we're very excited!

There was a big article in the Red Deer Advocate about funding for free tuition for foreign nurses, I have tried to find the articcle but can no longer see it. It may be worth enquiring about though.
