The application process for an internationally educated nurse begins when you contact the College and request an application package.
The package contains a set of application forms, to be filled out and submitted by the applicant, and a set of verification forms, which must be authorized and forwarded to the appropriate third party (employers, universities, etc.) and returned by the third party to the College.
Answering “yes” to certain questions on the declaration means the College will require you to forward additional information with your application, including a personal statement and supporting documentation. This information will be reviewed by the College’s Executive Director and referred to the Registration Committee, which will extend the time it takes to process your application.
The College’s role in the application process begins when it receives the following:
a completed application form
verification of course completion and transcript request from a recognized nursing school (this information must come directly from the nursing school in an official sealed envelope bearing the school’s official letterhead, logo or stamp)
Once the College receives the above information, we will review it and send you a letter within 20 weeks that acknowledges receipt of your application and outlines any further information the College needs to assess the application.
The evaluation fee is non-refundable. You may be entitled to a full or partial refund of the examination fee if you choose to withdraw from a scheduled examination.
You may photocopy any of the forms as necessary, and you are encouraged to keep a copy of your completed forms for your records. You must ensure that all forms are dated and signed.
While you can submit your citizenship documentation at any time during the application process, it is recommended that you submit your proof of Canadian citizenship with your application.
Incomplete or missing information, including missing or insufficient fees, may result in the form(s) being returned and a delay in the processing of your application.
Making a false or misleading statement or representation on your application or supporting documents may result in the cancellation of your application for registration and/or cancellation of any certificates that may be issued.
