Internationally Educated Nurse Career Pathway Program

Like many health-care systems across Ontario and Canada, Lakeridge Health is supporting and working with internationally educated nurses (IENs) to find career pathways in our hospitals.


IENs are nurses who received their training outside of Canada and who have come to work in this country. These health-care professionals bring much knowledge, skills, and expertise; however, to work as a nurse in Ontario, IENs must successfully meet requirements established by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), the province’s governing body for the nursing profession.

To support IENs to meet CNO requirements, Lakeridge Health is offering an IEN career pathway program to help them start their careers in Ontario and transition into registered nursing positions. Learn more about this program here.

  • opportunity gain experience in multiple departments/programs
