Internationally educated nurses to get head start in relicensing before immigrating to Canada
Thursday, April 14, 2016

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has funded a new program at CARE Centre for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) to help immigrating nurses get a head start on the registration process through Pre-Arrival Supports and Services (PASS). PASS serves IENs while still in their country of residence, and are designed to shorten the time that IENs spend from arrival in Canada to professional registration and employment.

“Along with individualized case management, PASS offers informational webinars and online learning. Each client participates in group sessions as well as individual counselling tailored to their unique sets of circumstances,” says Meghan Wankel, PASS program co-ordinator. “IENs will become well-informed about nursing in all parts of Canada, as well as learn the differences between various regulatory bodies and the wide variety of educational and employment opportunities available.”
