In order to increase the number of health-care professionals in Alberta, MacEwan University has announced a new avenue into the workforce for internationally educated nurses: A one-year Bridge to Canadian Nursing program. The certificate program is designed to help individuals with previous nursing education to meet the entry-level competencies in Alberta and Canada. Locally educated nurses looking to refresh or upgrade their skills are also able to take part. “The Bridge to Canadian Nursing program at MacEwan provides flexible options for those who wish to further solidify their knowledge and skills related to registered nursing practice in Canada,” said MacEwan Faculty of Nursing Dean Dr Christy Raymond. The program will launch in Fall 2023.
