New OINP Update on Education Requirements for Nurses

  • NOC 31300: Nursing coordinators and supervisors
  • NOC 31301: Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses
  • NOC 31302: Nurse practitioners
  • NOC 32101: Licensed practical nurses

To qualify for the OINP In-Demand Skills Stream, you need a full-time (1,560 hours per year), permanent job offer in an eligible occupation with a pay rate at or above the median wage listed on the Job Bank for the region. Additionally, you must have at least 9 months of work experience in Ontario in the same occupation (NOC code) as the job offer within the last 3 years.
