Welcome, Internationally Educated Nurses!

Are you an Internationally Educated Nurse (IEN) currently residing in Ontario or planning to move to Ontario? CARE Centre for IENs is a bridge training program that can help you with your application to become registered with the College of Nurses of Ontario.

Because we are a government-funded, not-for-profit organization as well as a registered charity, our main focus is your success! CARE Centre will guide you through the licensing process through a range of educational and workplace supports as you transition to practice as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Practical Nurse (RPN).

We offer an assortment of custom programs and courses, like Language and Communication for Nurses and Observational Job Shadowing. We also offer a variety of specialized workshops such as the Competency Assessment Supplement, Enhanced Communication Skills for the OSCE and Employment Strategies for Nurses. When you join CARE Centre with a one-time fee, you’re a member for life. You work one-on-one with your own case manager who will design a custom action plan to guide you on your journey to nursing in Canada — you can benefit from professional development and networking opportunities throughout your career. Please join us for a FREE Information Session at our Toronto head office or one of our regional offices to learn more about how CARE Centre is there for IENs – and will be there for you too!
