Internationally Educated Nurses

The Yukon Registered Nurses Association registers Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners via endorsement from other Canadian nursing regulatory bodies. As we do not have a school of nursing in the Territory, we rely on our national counterparts to assist internationally educated nurses.

This means that all internationally educated nurses must first become eligible for registration in another part of Canada before applying for registration in the Yukon.

For more information to become a RN or NP in Canada if you received your nursing education in another country, please visit the National Nursing Assessment Service to begin your initial application for registration/licensure at
