Graduate Nurse Internationally Educated Re-Entry (GNIE)

The Program

The Graduate Nurse Internationally Educated Re-Entry (GNIE) program is a full time one year certificate program which prepares internationally educated (IENs) for professional nursing practice and licensure in Canada. The program is designed to prepare IENs to practice within the Canadian healthcare system, renew and enhance previously acquired knowledge and skills, identify and address individual needs, ensure graduates meet the professional practice requirements, and enable effective communication skills with patients and colleagues.

Please be advised that applications to this program will only be accepted from Canadian citizens and permanent residents/landed immigrants of Canada.

Upon graduation, students will be eligible to apply for registration with the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals and to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).
