Yes. TEMC is a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) under the International Student Program (ISP) approved by the Government of Canada. International students enrolled in our Canadian Nursing Review Program for IENs are eligible to work part-time up to 20 hours per week during studies, and up to 40 hours per week during academic breaks, without a work permit.

Can I bring by partner / spouse / children with me?

In the past, students have been able to bring their families. However, it should be noted that not all IENs are automatically eligible to do so. In some circumstances, it may be recommended for IENs to come to Canada on their own and bring their families permanently when the time is right. We recommend IENs to consult with a licensed immigration consultant.

What happens if my visa gets refused?

Nursing review program visas for IENs typically have a significantly high approval rate. Nevertheless, in the event that a visa is denied, we urge all applicants to carefully review the Refusal Letter to identify the grounds for rejection and consider reapplying. It's not uncommon for students to attain visa approval on their second attempt.

YES. IENs can take the IELTS exam without needed to take the CLBAN exam. As of January 2023, both IELTS (general) and IELTS (academic) are both accepted English language exams. Please note the IELTS exam will only be accepted when written within two years prior to applying for registration

Is this program a diploma or certificate course?

The Canadian Nursing Review Program for IENs is a Professional Development and Up-skilling program designed for IENS with existing qualifications and work experience to maintain their nursing profession and become eligible to work as a licensed nurse in Canada.  The program is not subject to the provisions of the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005. 

Will I get a refund if my visa gets rejected?

Yes. If your visa is rejected and you decide not to pursue a resubmission, you will receive a refund of your tuition and fees. The amount refunded is determined based on the Tuition Refund Policy outlined in our student handbook.

Is your college approved for PGWP?

Although the TEMC is not designated for the PGWP program, international students who complete the nursing review course and become registered nurses in Canada may be eligible to stay and work in Canada under other work permit programs, such as the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, the International Mobility Program, or a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These programs allow international students who have graduated from non-designated institutions to apply for a work permit and gain valuable Canadian work experience. Students should research and understand the eligibility criteria for various work permit programs and consult with a qualified immigration lawyer or consultant to determine their eligibility and ensure that they follow the correct application process.
