Canada experiences an increase in the number of internationally trained nurses seeking employment opportunities

Canada’s provinces are making it easier for internationally trained nurses to work in the country by shortening registration and licensure processes. Atlantic Canada’s Nova Scotia College of Nursing (NSCN) has introduced an expedited process for applicants from seven designated countries: the Philippines, India, Nigeria, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. The new process reduces the processing time for nurses licensed in other parts of Canada from five days to just one and for internationally trained nurses from the designated countries from months to a few weeks. The NSCN received over 8,800 new applications through the new process just one week after its launch on May 1, 2023.
