I was trained in India and began my nursing career in Canada as a PSW. The program at Conestoga for internationally educated nurses helped me get my license as registered nurse in Canada before I moved on to get my master's in nursing. I then trained to be a nurse practitioner.

The program covers the basics of nursing in Canada and advanced subjects like cardiac nursing and how to interpret ECGs, which normally is not offered as a separate course.

The teachers are great and you get to learn from people with different backgrounds in differ clinical areas. Canadian nurses have a bigger scope than nurses in any other country. Learning about these areas plus getting a clinical placement was a huge advantage. The program also supported me as a I managed family and getting used to living in Canada.
