BC Nurses Union: Internationally Educated Nurses Project

July 13, 2010 8:30 AM | Andrew Skapenko (Administrator)

Internationally educated nurses (IENs) may be required to undergo a competency assessment process for nursing licensure eligibility in BC. The competency assessment known as the Substantially Equivalent Competency (SEC) assessment is available in the four western provinces in Canada in a bid to aid settlement of IENs in Canada. To assess professional knowledge, skills and abilities, candidates may be required to undertake examinations and practical application in the following areas: general nursing, maternal newborn health nursing, child health nursing, and mental health nursing.

Watch Lori Shortridge (Kwantlen) and Lynn Cairns (College of Registered Nurses of BC) present at BCPLAN SUMMIT 2010.
