Registration Requirements For Nurses To Work In Canada

Registration Requirements For Nurses To Work In Canada
Since launching HealthJobHub.com in July 2018, the number #1 enquiry I receive everyday from jobseekers is, "can you find me a job in Canada?".
The answer is yes and no. Yes, because our jobs platform, healthjobhub.com, publishes healthcare jobs across Canada which candidates can search and apply directly to employers. No because jobseekers need to first register with the relevant professional body in order to get a license to practice in Canada.
Therefore we are taking the initiative at HealthJobHub.com to consolidate a list of useful links for candidates to help find the registration requirements they need.
