Hi folks, wondered if anyone could help me? My wife and I are both British trained nurses, my speciality is developmental disabilities and my wife psychiatric. We both have substantial experience in forensic care, community mental health as well as liaison psychiatry and developmental disability care. We are looking into working in Canada; from my research so far it would seem British Columbia is the best option as they have psychiatric nurses (in Britain we train by branch speciality). I'm aware that we'd have to do the SEC test, my main worry is that due to my background I won't be recognised; I've received word from a nursing agency based in Vancouver that they do have registered nurses working in developmental disabilities. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, on that note are there any British trained nurses working in Canada who have had similar experiences? Thanks in advance.

The only way to find out is try however if you do not have hours both clinical and theory in Paeds, Mental Health, Obstetrics and Adult then you will have issues registering as a RN in Canada
