As a nurse, foreign nationals can apply for jobs in Canada and become permanent residents through several economic immigration programs at the federal and provincial levels, including through Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) or the Quebec Skilled Worker Program.
If their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) profile is high enough, nurses can often qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker program through the Express Entry system.
The Quebec Skilled Worker Program also offers nurses the chance to come to Canada if they score 50 or more points on the province’s selection grid.
Each province in Canada also operates its own PNP that leads to Canadian permanent residence.
The country welcomes registered nurses who hold a university degree in nursing, registered psychiatric nurses who hold a bachelor’s or post-graduate degree in psychiatric nursing, and licensed practical nurses who hold post-secondary diplomas in nursing.
The first step for a nurse interested in immigrating to Canada is to have his or her academic credentials evaluated to find out if they meet the standards required for Canadian status.
There are five organizations recognized by the Canadian government to evaluate foreign credentials:

The second step is to create a profile on the NNAS application page. That requires:
After the nurses have completed the required steps and NNAS has received their documents, they can submit their application and choose the nursing group and provincial association to which they wish to apply.
