    The Learning from Experience: Improving the Process of Internationally Educated Nurses’ (IEN) Applications for Registration (LFE) project used evidence from a systematic analysis of four years of IEN application data to increase the efficiency of the IEN application for registration process, while remaining committed to the principles of fairness, transparency, and public safety. This presentation will include highlights from the findings including applicant characteristics that contribute to success in the application for registration process, and process timeframes; and policy and process changes that were implemented to better respond to current and future IEN applications, and enable a more efficient process towards registering IENs.


    The Regulatory Administration information-sharing webinars offer the opportunity to gain knowledge about a particular topic and then engage in open dialogue, discussion and networking with the presenters and fellow attendees.  The phone lines will be open to allow for discussion of questions and comments from attendees.


    Offerings are presented through a web-based PowerPoint and audio teleconference, allowing attendees to participate and ask questions from their own office or conference room.  Using a speakerphone and PowerPoint at your location, you can have multiple attendees for one registration. Attendees receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation after the webinar.
