Hi,Here are some information for Nurses and Nursing related professional immigrant (newly landed or planning to land in few months). How to get registration in Ontario province
For professional Licensed and Registration as RN, PLN, OR RM, the applicant must go through the educational evaluation of theory and practical / credit hours should be according to the requirement, then one can for for exam and that is quit tough. If study hours or not equivalent according to their requirement then they will ask to go through placement ( study and practical without pay for few months) and again they will evaluate if got better marks, they will allow to appear in exam and then can have title and able to practice as RN /LPN.
