Nova Scotia Invites Nurses from Express Entry Pool

Nova scotia pnp draw for nurses

First Nova Scotia PNP Draw of the year 2022 invites Nurses

Nova Scotia PNP Draw invited 278 nurses in the Express Entry pool to apply for a Provincial Nomination on February 08, 2022.

Invited candidates had at least three years of experience working as a nurse and a minimum three-year educational credential. They also required a Canadian Language Benchmark of at least 9 in each area of the English or French exam.

The recent round of invitations was held through Nova Scotia’s Labour Market Priorities stream, a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) operated by the province.

What is Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities Stream:

The Labour Market Priorities stream was launched in August 2018 to give Nova Scotia the flexibility to target certain occupations and candidates through the Nova Scotia Nominee Program.

The Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities stream selects candidates in the federal Express Entry system who meet provincial labour market needs to apply for nomination. Only candidates who receive a Letter of Interest from the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration may apply.


  • Primary occupation listed as a Registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse (NOC 3012),
  • Minimum of 3 years of experience as a registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse by providing letters of reference from employers,
  • CLB score of 9, or higher, in English or French in all language abilities,
  • Bachelor’s degree or completion of a program of 3 or more years at a university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute,
  • Have an active Express Entry profile in the pool of candidates.

Candidates must submit their application within 30 calendar days of receiving a Letter of Interest (LOI).  Once Nova Scotia approves the application, and the candidate accepts the provincial nomination, they will receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score. These additional points virtually guarantee an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in an upcoming Express Entry draw.
