To fully practice as a nurse in Alberta, students must first pass a licensing exam. Upon passing the exam, if they intend to practice as a regulated healthcare professional, they are required to register with their regulatory body and hold an active practice permit. Once registered, There are conditions to be met, such as continuing education activities and working enough hours to maintain an active practice permit.
