    wadethebaddog,

    take the IELTS again and aim for scores with no less than 6.5..
    once you passed your IELTS you can notify agencies mentioned on this thread so they can put you in line once employers from canada comes to the Philippines to hire nurses. (take note: no payments should be given to agencies) once you are hired by employers then you can process your CRNE eligibilty on the province of your choice.
    You taking the CRNE first would be next to impossible since CRNE is only given in canada. The embassy is quite strict in giving out tourist visa for nurses just so they can take the CRNE. Second: since your IELTS is expired you cannot be eligible for CRNE since they need you to have an active English proficiency exam.

    You do not need an agency to go through the process.

    steps 1. Apply to province and be assessed. Once assessed they will state wither eligible to sit CRNE. They may give you permission to work on temp license whilst waiting to sit CRNE
    step 2. Find employer by contacting hospitals in the areas you want to live. Once you find a employer (they prefer you to have eligibility hence it being step 1) they will either apply for LMO or already have one and will give you a copy
    step 3. Complete forms for temp work permit on CIC website and if family going with you complete their information. Any children they may need a student visa to attend school but does appear to vary so will need to check on that. If spouse is going with you they have to get their own permit and apply same time as you. Send to local Canadian embassy along with fees
    step 4. They will request you attend for a medical and usually give a list of accepted facilities
    step 5. They will issue you a letter stating you meet all requirements and your temp work permit will be issues on arriving in Canada at port of entry.
    step 6. Arrange move to Canada

    Remember CRNE can only be sat in Canada 3 times a year

    Silverdragon, for example, you received eligibility to sit the CRNE and at the same time was able to find an employer in Canada, will having an employer in Canada be enough to be able to get a visa to Canada and that TWP compared to just applying for a tourist visa? im planning to apply to BC on my own. I want to know my chances of having a visa to Canada because I met someone who was suppose to sit the Oct 8 CRNE but was denied of a tourist visa, so she was not able to sit the Oct 8 schedule.

    If you get eligibility and have a employer and the province gives you a temp license then you may as well apply for TWP and work before sitting CRNE. I can not guarantee that you will get issued a tourist visa if that is the plan. Working before your CRNE may help you understand the Canadian way of working which could help in the exam but also if you want to participate in some courses to help you with the exam you can also do that. I know that some provinces have some exam prep to help foreign nurses

    essirrahc, i got worried about your entry that i called apex. they have received visas for those hired in march already but mine has not arrived yet. please check with them as i think the visas started arriving last week. this is fine because those hired by regina will be leaving on september. saskatoon nurses leave by august and the other health regions by july for those who already have their visas. it is best to call the agency. this is the information i got from them.

    hi ninanurse!
    can you pls give me the number on how could i contact the apex company?i am also willing to apply sice there is a retrogression.i also have signed a contract from an agency to the u.s but it will take years until i can go there since what is happening right now.hope you can help me.thanks
