Future students

Nursing is more than a job — it is more than a career — it is the ability to make a difference in someone's life ... every day! 

International Nursing Opportunities

International options

We are committed to promoting and facilitating global education for students and faculty.

Aboriginal Health & Nursing Pathways Program

Indigenous Health and Nursing

 A priority for TRU is to promote Indigenous nursing education, practice and research. 


Certification for international nurses and re-certification for Canadian nurses

In addition to on-campus programs, we offer a flexible online program for nurses who have prior Canadian work experience but who need to renew their credentials. This program also provides internationally educated nurses with the education and skills required to work in BC. This program is called Return to Registered Nursing Certificate Program, and you can learn more about it here.

Inclusive and unique learning environments

We have designated seats for Indigenous students and we accept international students. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program offers students an opportunity for an international experience.

At TRU School of Nursing, we offer study-abroad opportunities, field schools, undergraduate research, volunteer and student led initiatives.

Learning opportunities abound, so expect to learn from nurses, fellow students and the people you are entrusted to care for during practicum placements in both home and health care settings. The human experience is an integral part of the curriculum and key to your learning.
