Source: CARE Centre for Internationally Educated Nurses
CARE Centre for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) was created in 2001 to address a major gap in Ontario’s healthcare human resources strategy. Nurses comprise the largest employee group in the sector, and there are frequent, cyclical staffing shortages. Yet in 2001, IENs who had settled in Ontario were failing their registration exams at a rate of almost 70 percent, having no supports for them to learn about the Canadian healthcare system, acquire occupation-specific language and communication skills, and have the resource materials and guidance to successfully prepare for the RN and RPN exams.
