The first step towards working as a nurse in Canada is to set up on online account with NNAS and complete your application.
You are only eligible to apply for an NNAS application if you:
- Graduated from a college or university nursing program outside of Canada
- Have never worked as a nurse in Canada before
- Want to work as a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), or RegisteredPsychiatric Nurse (RPN) in Canada
You may use your online NNAS account to print your required forms, check the status of your application, view your emails, see your language test results, and update your contact information.
Note: If you have already worked as a nurse in Canada, you do not need to set up an online NNAS account. You may apply directly to the regulatory body of your choice.
