Orientation to Nursing in Canada for Internationally Educated Nurses

We're transitioning to a new registration system. If you're looking for a course that starts after July 1, 2017 visit saskpolytech.ca/part-time-studies.
If you're an internationally educated nurse who wants to practice nursing in Saskatchewan and Canada, you'll need to update your credentials to meet the competencies of the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses' Association. Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s innovative Orientation to Nursing in Canada for Internationally Educated Nurses program can help. This applied certificate program is specifically designed to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to work as a nurse in Canada. You will:
  • learn about medical technology, terminology and drug therapy theory in Canada
  • explore issues generated by language barriers and cultural differences
  • have your clinical skills assessed in comparison to techniques and equipment used in Canada
  • take part in simulation labs and supervised clinical practice education
  • prepare to write the Canadian Registered Nurse Exam (CRNE)
