Info Session for Internationally Educated Nurses

February 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

 

  • 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, we will share information about the nursing pathway and our program eligibility and services. This is a great opportunity for IENs to gain relevant information for their pathway and connect with Career Coaches for further support and guidance.
  • Register on Eventbrite.

PROGRAM SERVICES

The Career Paths services include:

•Personalized career coaching and action planning
•Reimbursements for some of the costs related to the registration process
•Job search support and labour market information
