    HI! I'm from the philippines and just migrated last July this year and will submit the assessment forms to CNO before the month ends. I was wondering what requirements to pass. My mom's friend told her that I need to pass forms B1 and B2 signed by PRC. I don't have these forms in the assessment package that CNO sent me. Please enlighten me. And what's the next process? I hope I can hear some replies and detailed responses because I don't have anyone to ask to. Thanks. May God bless u!
    It's the Verification of Registration form to be filled and sent by PRC (do not submit this yourself), there's a window at PRC that take care of this. You can opt for their express mail if your in a hurry. You can ask CNO (cno@cnomail.org 416 928-0900)if its not included in your package. Wait for CNO email for next process. Check this site http://www.cno.org/docs/reg/44036_RegAsNurse.pdf. Best regards.

    does the canadian BON recognize volunteer experience?

    No. In order for it to be counted it has to be a paid position.

    are you residing in the Philippines while you applied as immigrant? did you go about it all by yourself or did you get Atty Cohen?

    I wonder if what's best? to apply as an immigrant first then pursue an CNRE to be license in canada?

    I've been reading about canada's nomination program but it requires a relative to be nominated and to get fast attention then I contacted my relative then i found out she's living in quebec... what a luck! I have twisted my french tongue..

    sigh! any suggestion?

    You should read the thousands of posts on this topic from others who have already done it. There's a lof of really good information here. One thing you should know is that Canada Immigration isn't issuing visitors' visas for people to come write exams like they used to. And the family reunification track is also undergoing some changes.

    because they'd been told it was easier to get into the US from Canada than the Phillipines. No desire to settle, just work and leave.
    What?!?!?! Geez that is so not true!

    Thank you for replying to my post.
    About the equivalency of Filipino BScN and Canadian BScN, is there anyone you know who did not have to take a bridging program? How about having Masteral units or Masters Degree in the Philippines, would it help in any way?
    If they want you to take the bridge courses, I suggest you just take it. It will help you in the long run and what you learn there might spare you from a lawsuit. You can't just take a short cut and not expect any repercussions.

    HI. I found this thread very helpful.

    I'm a nurse from the Philippines waiting for my working visa to Alberta, Canada.

    My question is: if I start off as an LPN and register with the CLPNA, can I still register with CARNA as an RN later in my career using the same credentials from the Philippines which was used in the CLPNA registration?

    Thank you very much!

    And a follow up question would be, how's it like living in Edmonton?
