Nova Scotia PNP welcomes nurses to work in the province

By  Editor
Updated July 25 2023

Another Canada PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) draw was conducted by Nova Scotia on May 22. It invited nurses to apply for a provincial nomination for Permanent Residence (PR) in Canada.

The Nova Scotia PNP (Nova Scotia Nominee Program) has chosen candidates with at least 3 years of experience working as a registered psychiatric nurse. The job is identified as NOC 3012 in Canada’s National Occupational Classification index.

Besides, the candidate is also required to have a minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 8 in French or English in every language ability.

Candidates holding a bachelor's degree were chosen in the draw if not those who completed a post-secondary program of a minimum span of 3 years.

Copies of the following documents are required of the candidates while applying for the provincial nomination:

  • Language tests
  • Proof of education

The proof of education will include an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from a designated organization. This applies when the diploma or degree was obtained at a foreign institute.

If candidates want to be considered for Nova Scotia’s provincial nomination through the Labor market Priorities stream, they must have their profiles in immigration Canada’s federal Express Entry system.

The candidates invited by Nova Scotia through this PNP draw have 60 days to complete and submit their application for a provincial nomination.

If they get a provincial nomination from the province, it will add 600 points to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores. That will effectively guarantee them the chance to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in an upcoming Express Entry draw.

The CRS score is a ranking that is given to the profiles of candidates that are in the federal Express Entry pool. It’s awarded on the basis of factors like:

  • Education
  • Age
  • Work experience
  • Language skills

The higher the score, the greater their chance to get selected to receive invites.
