New OINP Update on Education Requirements for Nurses

Starting July 1, 2024, Ontario has simplified the process for nursing professionals applying through the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities and French-Speaking Skilled Worker streams. Nurses who are registered with the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) in the General, Extended, or Temporary class and have a primary NOC in the specified occupations below no longer need to meet the education requirement.

  • 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.

See below the general eligibility for BCPNP International Graduate Streams:

Candidates must:

Recent OINP Update:

OINP has changed its Employer Guide and Employer Job Offer stream pages to clearly state the minimum number of employees an employer needs.

The new OINP guidance clarifies that for a company with a mobile workforce, the minimum number of workers required at the location where the applicant will work or report can include both:

-workers who work at that location
-workers who report to work at that location

The “report to work” location could be:

– The place where the applicant’s direct boss or supervisor is.
– The administrative office where they get their work tasks and assignments.

The “report to work” location must have at least 5 workers in the Greater Toronto Area and 3 workers outside the GTA.
