    1. Hi Naomi,
      For nurses who want to work in Canada, the required IELTS band score can vary slightly depending on the specific province or territory, but generally, the following IELTS scores are required:

      Overall band score:
      Most provinces require an overall band score of at least 7.0 for registration and licensing as a nurse.

      Individual Module Requirements:
      Speaking: Minimum band score of 7.0

      Listening: Minimum band score of 7.5

      Reading: Minimum band score of 6.5

      Writing: Minimum band score of 7.0

      It’s important to note that some provinces may have slightly different minimum score requirements, so it’s advisable to check the specific requirements for the province or territory where you plan to work or register as a nurse.

      For example:
      In Ontario, the college of nurses of Ontario requires an overall band score of 7.0 with a minimum score of 7.0 in both speaking and writing modules.

      In British Columbia, the college of Registered Nurses of British Columbia requires an overall band score of 7.0 with a minimum score of 7.0 in each of the four modules.

      Meeting the IELTS score requirements is essential for Nurses seeking registration and employment in Canada, as it demonstrates proficiency in the English Language which is crucial for effective communication with patients, colleagues, and other health care professionals.

      It’s always recommended to check the latest IELTS score requirements with the specific regulatory body or licensing authority in the province or territory where you plan to work as a nurse in Canada.
