Omni College Specifically for International Nurses

OMNI College specializes in health care programs that prepare foreign-trained health care professionals for work in Canada. The College is an accredited, private post-secondary education institution located in Richmond, a bustling suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Since 1999, through our comprehensive bridging programs, more than 95% of OMNI students who have written the Canadian nurse licensing exam have successfully passed. These success rates have led many of our students to choose OMNI over any other college in Canada.

The College is also proud to be a Designated Learning Institution (DLI), designated as an EQA (Education Quality Assurance) institution, approved by the Government of British Columbia.
