OMNI College is an accredited, private post-secondary education institution specialized in training internationally-educated health care professionals for work in Canada.
Located in a bustling suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, OMNI College has been successfully training internationally-educated nurses since 1999, and we hope that you will spend 2 minutes to read a little bit about our story…
The College was founded in 1999 by Mr. Ron Burke, who himself is a Canadian Registered Nurse and entrepreneur. He ran several successful health care related businesses before starting the College, and continues to share his passion for nursing and education with others.
At times, as with many new business start ups, establishing OMNI’s reputation and success proved difficult as costs were high and few people knew about OMNI. However, despite the challenges, Ron pushed on determined to continue to help others fulfill their dreams of becoming licensed health care workers in Canada. Flash forward to 2012, OMNI can now boast a proven track record with extremely high success rates. To date, 95% of OMNI students who have written the Canadian Nurse licensing exams has successfully passed.
Many other colleges and private tutors, including public schools, have tried to replicate OMNI’s track record. We encourage all students who are considering which college to attend to do their due diligence, do the research needed and ask to speak with the school’s current students or graduates. Your education is an investment into yourself, and we encourage you to invest the time to research your options before you make a decision. By doing so, we hope that you will come to decide on OMNI. We look forward to welcoming you to OMNI College!

Living in Vancouver
Vancouver, BC Canada – is a vibrant, multi-cultural city set in a spectacular natural environment. The city played host to the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games and proved to the world exactly why Vancouver is ranked as one of the best places to live in the world. Whether strolling along the sands of the Pacific Ocean beaches, taking jumps with your snowboard off the snow-filled mountains, or window shopping along the high-fashion Robson Street area, Vancouver is a year-round paradise for city and outdoors-minded people alike. The city is clean and safe.
Vancouver bursts with city life and cultural neighborhoods. In the heart of downtown is Robson Street – a designer shopper’s dream for fashion and gourmet fare. Just west of Robson is Stanley Park, one of the largest city parks in North America with the Stanley Park Seawall and its fabulous views of the city and harbour. Vancouver is a collection of neighborhoods – from the unique shops and European bistros of trendy Yaletown to the outdoor cafes of laid-back Kitsilano – where there are always places to go and things to do.
This city of two million people is Canada’s western gateway to Far East Asia, Eurasia, New Zealand and Australia, and to the United States of America. It is also British Columbia’s major education and service industry centre.
Canadians are known all over the world to be friendly, hospitable people who welcome visitors from all over the world. The population itself is a very multicultural group and is made up of people from all different ethnic backgrounds and cultures. In fact, asides from the indigenous aboriginals who make up only 3.8% of the population in Canada, all Canadians or their ancestors are actually immigrants.
In addition to each program’s Admission Requirements, all international students must also meet the following criteria:
Hold a valid student visa authorization, issued by Canada Immigration
Hold a valid work visa authorization (if your program includes a work component), issued by Canada Immigration
Have proof of medical insurance coverage for your stay in Canada
Hold a valid passport
Provide a physicians’ report stating that you are in good health
International students taking a program that includes a practical (work experience) component that is an essential and integral part of the program must obtain a Working Visa. Students in the Canadian Nursing Review Program for IENs will require a Working Visa.
