Getting Your Licence in BC

If you were educated outside Canada,  you will need to apply for a licence in British Columbia. 

Financial Support for Internationally Educated Nurses

If you are an internationally educated nurse pursuing registration with the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM), you may be able to get financial support through Health Match BC. Click here to find out more. 


Members of BCNU`s Mosaic of Colour Caucus are also available to help internationally educated nurses transition to living and working in BC.  The Mosaic of Colour Caucus is a safe space for members of colour to support one another. 

In addition to the Mosaic of Colour Caucus, internationally educated nurses are welcome to reach out to any of the other BCNU-sponsored equity groups, including the Indigenous Leadership Circle, the LGBTQ Caucus, and the Workers with Disabilities Caucus.
