1. They will send or give you forms to fill up and fees to pay to open your file
2. When they receive the papers, they will send you another set of papers

b. A form for the University where you finished your bachelor’s in India to have them send you transcripts back directly to OIIQ.

d. Other papers to instruct you on what ever else you need to do eg. French and additional schooling
3. You wait for them to receive the papers and give you the evaluation. (It takes 1 to 1.5 year or shorter)
B. they will tell you to either:
1. Take the internationally trained nurses integration course at John Abbott. So far they’re the ONLY English college that offers the course. or if you’re good in French, there are more French colleges that offer the same course.
2. Or do a 40 days training in a hospital if you have a lot of recent experience. That’s a new choice they are giving this 2013-2014. The challenge is finding a hospital that will let you do the training which is almost none or very rare.
