    Hello everybody ,

    I am really confused about CNO english requirements. In their website its mentioned that u need to have 6.5 in rest and 7 in speaking. Does it mean a candidate with a 6 in reading is not applicable, as in other blogs and by very reputed canadian nursing professional i have read that all they focus on writing and speaking. so one must have 6.5 in writing and 7 in speaking.

    I am really confused what to do. Is it possible to send CNO my two IELTS score cards differently.

    One more thing i have got the application package with me, its nowhere written in the package that we need to send ielts score at this stage, they have just mentioned about the completed forms and fees plus the transcripts from the nursing college.

    So is dat mean we can get the eligibilty to write CRNE w/o ielts score and probably we have to send them after passing the exam

    Ielts scores are directly send to the Regulatory Body.
    Your application won`t be assessed without language
    testing scores.
    6.5 means that your achieved average score in the Reading, Writing
    and Listening Module has to be either 6.5 or higher.
    Speaking Module 7 or higher!
    In BC the language testing requirements were updated.

    They are focussing on every part of the Module or do you think
    that effective communication is possible without listening and
    reading skills?

    Prepare for IELTS and try to acheive the requested scores!

    Thanks MOna 77 for the reply.

    If u dont mind are u registered wid CNO too. Because one of my friend who recently got registered with CNO told me dat CNO asked her about the submission of the ielts score ater very long.

    Other than ielts score I can submit my Toeic scores too, but don't they accept Two ielts score.

    The first step with the CNO is to have your education assessed, the CNO has a high volume of international applicants and it often takes over a year, just to assess an applicant's education (requirement #1). The CNO does not want IELTS submitted at the beginning of the application process because the IELTS results are only good for two years and they will likely expire, before an applicant has completed all 7 requirements for registration in Ontario.

    Your information that "the application won't be assessed without language test scores" is not correct when it comes to the CNO.

    A friend of mine sent his application to CNO a month ago
    and received the information that he has to provide them
    with current english proficiency test results, they won`t
    process his application until they haven`t received!
