When Thelma and her husband decided to immigrate to Canada, she had been working as a registered nurse in Nigeria for three years. Even though Thelma began the process of becoming an RN in Canada before her arrival, she could not anticipate how expensive it was going to be. The advisory report from the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) indicated that Thelma needed to take 13 courses and complete additional clinical hours to receive a license to practice in Canada. In need of financial support, Thelma applied for a Windmill Microlending loan. She became a member of the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) a few years after landing in Canada. In January 2017, Thelma got a job as an RN working in the psychiatry department. Read her success story.
For ten years, Trupti worked as a nurse in India. After moving to Canada in 2012, Trupti realized that she could not find a job without a license. She was not sure what to do. At CARE Centre for Internationally Educated Nurses, they explained how nursing worked in Canada and guided her through the steps she needed to take. Since Trupti could not afford to pay for the additional courses she needed to complete, a loan from Windmill Microlending gave her the support she required. In 2016, Trupti received her RPN license, and, within a month, she landed her first job as a Registered Practical Nurse in Ontario. Read her success story.
