Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN)

Our next student intake for the Non-Degree (IEN) Post-RN Distance Program will be September 2021. We will begin accepting applications in June 2021. Please email your application and required documents to Admissions ( at that time.


The StFX Distance Nursing Program provides International Educated Nurses (IEN) the opportunity to complete baccalaureate level nursing courses that develop and cultivate nursing knowledge, skill, and judgement related to an individual’s identified competency gaps, provided by a Provincial/Territorial College of Nurses within Canada.  

The StFX Distance Nursing Program Coordinator will review and assess each candidate’s competency gap list and provide course recommendations based on an individual’s competency gaps.  

**Please note, the Distance Nursing programs are not eligible for any government student loan funding.
