Description: The Clinically Intensive Orientation to Nursing in Ontario program is for Canadian Registered Nurses who are registered in either Ontario or another Canadian jurisdiction and have a letter from the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) stating they are out of practise hours and are required to complete theory and clinical hours to re-obtain their registration in Ontario. This program is also for non-registered foreign-trained nurses who have met the educational requirements for registration as a Registered Nurse (RN) in Ontario and have been given permission to write the NCLEX but are out of practise hours and are required to complete theory and clinical hours mandated by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) to obtain registration as a RN in Ontario.

This program is NOT for non-registered foreign-trained nurses who require further education to achieve their outlined competencies as mandated by the College of Nurses to achieve registration as a Registered Nurse in Ontario. Those competencies must be completed at a university. This program is identical to Orientation to Nursing in Ontario for Nurses. The difference in the two programs is that Clinically Intensive Orientation to Nursing in Ontario is for those whose College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) letter requires more than 400 hours of clinical, which will require another semester to complete.
