Attracting Internationally Educated Nurses

The departments of Advanced Education, Health, and Labour and Immigration are launching a three-pronged plan to help reduce barriers for internationally educated nurses. This includes expanding nurse bridging programs and clinical placements while streamlining the regulatory process and creating a new online platform to help internationally educated nurses navigate the process.

Advanced Education is spending $3.5 million in 2022-23 to begin expanding educational opportunities for internationally educated nurses.

Alberta is the best place in Canada to live, work and raise a family. There is huge global demand for more health-care workers. This strategic approach will help get more highly skilled and qualified nurses into our health-care system faster while reminding the world of all the advantages of living in Alberta.
