Massive Healthcare Labour Shortages Mean Opportunities For Nurses
Even before the pandemic, Ottawa’s Jobbank employment website was forecasting a shortage of 36,500 nurses for the period from 2019 through to 2028.
The situation is much more dire now. The Indeed.ca job website had more than 19,200 job listings for nurses in Canada in early February.
At the upper end of the wage scale, a nurse in the Canadian territory of Nunavut can earn a median annual wage of $169,045 based on a 37.5-hour work week. The median annual wage for nurses across Canada is $78,000 based on that standard workweek.
Foreign Nurses Need To Have Their Credentials Recognized
Immigrating to Canada for these nursing professionals can be as simple as one, two, three.
The first step for a nurse eyeing Canada as a destination for immigration is to have his or her academic credentials evaluated to see if they are up to Canadians standards.
The Canadian government recognizes five organizations for the assessment of foreign educational credentials:
Once the educational and background checks have been completed, the next step is for the prospective immigrant to have those nursing credentials recognized in Canada by the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), a step that costs US$650.
The second step in the process for the foreign national looking to immigrate to Canada as a nurse is to create a profile on the NNAS application page.
