    You do not need to use an agency, can easily be done on your own.

    Apply to province nursing board.
    Once you get eligibility to sit CRNE look for a employer
    Complete application forms on CIC website and get LMO from employer
    When advised get medical
    Then will get letter stating you meet requirements and OK to head to Canada.
    Arrange move and temp work permit will be issued at port of entry to Canada

    Same question again SilverDragon102,
    I'm still confused. I can bring my husband without applying him workpermit first. right ? Or I have to apply for him together with my application ?
    Thanks.

    If your husband is accompanying you to Canada but not going to work then he needs to be included on your application. If he plans to work then he needs to submit his own application ideally at the same time as yours. He still needs to be included on yours regardless. Alternatively he can apply for work permit at port of entry but if going to be working in healthcare or something similar and a medical is required then they will not give him one until the medical is done. If he comes with no intention of working and then changes his mind then there is a phone number on the back of your TWP which he needs to ring to organise, same goes if he wants to be a student. He needs a visa allowing him to be a student.

    hi! i have submitted my application, together with my IELTS, to CRNBC today. I have also submitted the necessary forms to my school of nursing and PRC.

    I am 2nd courser, with BS Tourism as my 1st course. Some of my general subjects from BS Tourism was credited when I applied for BSN. Do I still need to request my 1st school (BS Tourism course) to submit my TOR to CRNBC or is the TOR from my nursing school enough?

    I hope to receive my eligibility as soon as possible so I can stay close to my hubby who is in Alberta working as a chef.

    chezie_86,

    when you received your eligibility to sit the CRNE, on what visa did you go to Canada-- tourist or working? how did you do the process?

    Huge number of IEN at CRNBC if I am not wrong. Long waiting list.

    Since your hubby is cooking at Alberta , you should apply through http://www.nurses.ab.ca/Carna/index....StructureID=46

    that already came to my mind but Alberta have so many requirements compared to other provinces. anyway, if ever i get to BC, we'll just be neighbors hahaha

    I think shorter waiting time for Alberta. Based on this forum you have to wait 9 months to 1 yrs pls just to get temp permit from BC.

    and i find BC to have more conducive climate especially for Filipinos who are used to having hot climate

    Based on your information , I'm sure you can have super-hot-and-steamy night everyday in Alberta than BC.
