Welcome to the College of Nurses of Ontario‚Äôs guide to registration for Canadian applicants.

This information is intended for individuals who have graduated from a Canadian nursing program outside of Ontario and nurses who are registered to practise in another Canadian province or territory.

Please return to the How to Apply homepage if you are:

  • a recent graduate of an Ontario nursing program
  • an internationally educated nurse who has never been registered to practise nursing within Canada
  • applying to the College to practise as a Nurse Practitioner.

This guide breaks down the registration process, emphasizing the requirements that all nurses must meet and the steps required to become a member of the College.

We have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of this information, but please contact the College if you have any questions or discover an error.
