Congratulations.
I hope they lift the ban soon or you get a waiver.please keep us updated for when the Visa issuance happens. I am so elated for you. Congrats again, it would surely end in praise.

Hi,

Please i need some guidance on the Canada process. It seems the information here is for folks with a Bsc/Msc in nursing, my younger sister just finished from a 3yr program at a school of nursing in Nigeria, not a bec program. what are her options to migrate to Canada? She has no work experience so I am considering having her travel via the student route since no work experience for PR but i dont even know what programs she needs to apply for because the information on the websites that i have checked is confusing...i dont know anything about nursing. What is the best course/program that she can apply to, cost effectiveness is also key so can she leverage her 3yr program from Nigeria to reduce her length of study/conversion. Ultimately the goal is for her be able to practise as a nurse here without us going bankrupt lol. Thank you for your help

Tell you sister to focus on IELTS if her goal is to practice as a nurse in Canada

Once she is able to conquer IELTS she can then apply for adaptation program in Canada with OMNI college 6m-1yrs program

But I will advice her to focus on UK for now since you're not that financially buoyant

Let her sit for OET and. CBT

Hi everyone, season greetings.
Please I have a question. I recently submitted my application on NMC uk, and paid the 140 pounds. I got a mail. Should I wait for another response to proceed to cbt or should I contact nmcn for verification (the one we pay 17500 for).
Thank you

Congrats on her graduation.
*For Canada, you are right that she doesn't qualify for PR right now.
*Her options for study permit is a BSN program at any university she can afford.
* she can not trade any of her Nigerian RN education for credit in any BN program as she isn't a Canadian RN at this time.
*schools for undergrad BN would cost from 18k to 30k tuition alone.

My advice, go to the UK work and bridge your diploma into BSN and or a masters degree. Use express entry to return to Canada and start the licensure program. Migrate to Montreal Quebec as I gathered their process is less tedious.

These types of programs at Omni DONOT guarantee you your license. Best option is if you enter Canada with Omni admission, change school and study to be a health care aide (manitoba 1year). Ensure your study permit is still valid and apply for Pgwp. Use Mpnp to get PR status then go back to school as a PR to study nursing.

Except you come to Canada first before switching to those courses, it will be hard to get a visa for them.
Please if one comes to Canada with a visitor's visa, what's the next step to becoming a nurse's aide? And is it a pathway to PR? If yes, how long might it take to achieve PR through this path? Thanks.smiley

I am unsure if I have responded to you or not. I am no longer in possession of any CBT materials. You can ask openly here and someone would get back to you. I will look out for your email and send you the contact I have.

If you read through previous posts, you would find all the discussion and arguments about Omni.

In summary, graduating from Omni does not equal you having a license to practice. Omni can be likened to an organized Jamb lecture. Knowledge gained is useful in attempting your jamb, but it doesn't qualify you to take jamb (thats more your secondary school or proof you have graduated from a secondary school).

A visitor's visa give you rights to visit ONLY.
You would need to exit the country and apply for student visa from your country of residence. Any form of study in Canada with a study permit is a pathway to PR. However you can not use a healthcaere aide admission to file for your student visa from Nigeria because heslthcare aides are not recognized in Nigeria. And the major aim of your student visa application is to proof that the studying you are embarking on would be beneficial to the Nigerian society and your life back here in Nigeria.

Thank you very much for your in-depth response, Vicky. Ugh, Nigeria never fails to disappoint her citizens!angry Please what viable means could one achieve this PR through the visitor's visa route? Studying overseas is rather too expensive. Thanks.

Bros, I know your optimism but a visitor isn't entitled to such privilege.

E just be like say make person wey con visit you for house, con say him don turn permanent resident "PR". Think about it. grin

What I think you can do is to acquire a relevant skill or certification - IT, Nursing, et al and then migrate to any country of your choice.

That's too detailed. But if you can read from page 1 to this page, it will really help you alot. I started with page one and I asked many questions and with the help I get here, my wife have gotten ATT. The funniest part is that I am not a nurse.
So, sit down with your notes and write down all the info u need.

There is no route to get PR status through a visitors visa route. Except of course in the 6mths of visiting, you fall in love and marry a citizen or permanent resident.

OK, thanks a lot. Quite depressing cry to hear this! But the marriage idea, wink not a bad one, though it may not be feasible to marry in under 6 months. In such an instance where one overstayed and married after about 1 or 2 years, would the PR not work out?
PS PLEASE pardon my awkward questions. There may be hundreds of other people here who might find themselves in this situation, and the responses and advice rendered here might be of immense help to them too. Thanks once again.smiley

Happy new year everyone

I'm a bnsc nurse with 3 years work experience after graduation. I've been doing my masters (health related but not nursing) and have not worked as a nurse since 2018. I want to migrate to Canada and I want to know if its possible to work as an RN without NNAS process. My research so far indicates that internationally educated nurses will have to apply to NNAS first so they can determine one's level in nursing and then prescribe any bridging courses/practicals that will qualify the person to write a licensing exam. I heard their process takes 2 to 5 years so I'd like to know if there is a shortcut. Is there a short university program I can do to brush up on my nursing skills and qualify me for the licensing exams without applying through NNAS? If anybody else has had any experience with them, can they share please? Any input would be appreciated.

Tips on New Zealand Nursing Registration Pathway.

BNSc is required.
IELTS 7 in each component and you are allowed to combine if the tests are taken within 12 months, OET is also accepted with a score of 350, combination is also accepted. These two basic requirements are the first thing that makes you eligible for registration.
First Stage: The Nursing Council New Zealand (NCNZ) process is in three stages, firstly CGFNs credential evaluation(you need 5 documents for this, Nigeria nursing council verification, criminal check, photo ID like passport, employment reference and your ( IELTS/OET)

Second stage - they will send the report to NCNZ directly and the NCNZ will issue you a decision letter to apply for CAP - Competency Assessment Program. The decision letter usually comes with a list of accredited CAP provider and their tuition fee ranges from 6000-10000 nzd which has to be fully paid.

Third Stage: After you have gotten a CAP placement and you have paid, you need the school receipt , decision letter and your bank account statement that will show that you can pay for your flight and support yourself financially during your CAP.

Please note that you will not be paid during your CAP and you are not allowed to work in any capacity until you are fully registered and you will be on a visitor visa for that 3 months. After your CAP you will write a mini exam and your CAP provider will submit your application for your licence.

Fourth Stage: As soon as your licence comes usually within 2-3 weeks you can get a job and convert your visa to a work visa. This allows you to bring in your family and immediately you get a work visa you are eligible for residents permit as a skilled migrant. Nurses are given priority and you will get it faster than other non health professionals.

Important Notes:

NZ does not have an embassy in Nigeria but you can get your visa via south Africa. No stress, the courier will pick up your passport from your home drop it off in SA and they will call to inform you when the visa is ready and courier will return it back to you. When you are applying for your family, you can do it online for them since you are already in NZ.

Also, there are no agents to sponsor you in NZ the only agents available are Asians but you have to pay them but it doesn't worth it, the processing is easy and very transparent you can save that money for your upkeep or part of your CAP fee.

CAP classroom lecture is only for 2 weeks of basic nursing procedures like vital signs and few pharmacology calculations, it's a time for you to shine because I know Nigerian nurses are intelligent.

Tips On Australia Nursing Registration Pathway:

For now NZ route is the cheapest and easiest way to get in to Australia registration pathway through their trans Tasman agreement. With your NZ licence no exams required, you only need to pay a token to get your Australia registration.

If you have post basic nursing please do not apply for registration with it only apply for RN registration, the speciality experience will help you get a job in that field and from there you can study to get their own post graduate certificate if you wish. And if you're already registered in an English speaking country and wants to relocate to NZ, you can get a waiver for English proficiency but other processing remains same

On a lighter note, the money you spent migrating to New Zealand or Australia is worthwhile, because at the end of the day your kids can enjoy free education and free health.

For further enquiries, kindly drop your questions in the comment and i will be glad to provide you with good responses. You can as well subscribe to the blog in order to receive an alert for a new info.

The best wishes.
