Douglas College Career Paths – Health Information Session for Internationally Educated Nurses

October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Poster

The pathway to licensure for IENs can be a challenging one to navigate. Regulatory body requirements, language assessments, and cost are just some of the obstacles that IENs must overcome while working toward their nursing registration in BC. At this virtual information session, information about the nursing pathway and the program and services eligibility will be shared. This is a great opportunity for IENs to gain relevant information for their pathway and connect with Career Coaches for further support and guidance. NNAS, the National Nursing Assessment Service, will also be present to provide an introduction to the nursing credential evaluation process.
