Nova Scotia selects registered nurses from the Express Entry (EE) system
To qualify in the lastest draw, registered nurses must have a valid and active EE profile. The EE system is one of Canada’s main immigration pathways. It handles applications from 3 economic streams such as:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
Besides, applicants who apply through the EE system, get their profile assessed as per Human Capital Factors such as:
- Language Skills
- Education Level
- Work Experience
Further, an applicant will receive a CRS score after assessment of its profile. Also, if an applicant receives a nomination against its EE profile then they receive an extra 600 CRS score. This score increases their chance of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada.
