About the Panel:

The aim of this panel discussion is to bring awareness  to Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN) transition into the fabric of the Canadian Healthcare System, and to better understand the untapped resources that these nurses bring to Canada’s healthcare. The discussion will engage the CNO to better understand where we are at as a nation and the direction we will be taking to untap the assets of these nurses. We will also elicit the insight and experience of an IEN in shedding light to the challenges faced by this group and recommendations as we move forward. The president of the CARE Centre for IENs will share resources that are available for these nurses to transition and integrate into the healthcare system.
