Hello. I am a UK trained nurse who has long held an ambition to emigrate to Canada (specifically Nova Scotia). I have received notification from the CRNNS that I am to undertake a SEC asessement (the 5 day one)!
My main question is: If I am to undertake further study after the SEC can I do this in the UK? I am nervous re the assessment as despite having received peads, obs and mental health education during my training it was some time ago and I specialised in adult nursing where I now have 12 years experience (mainly ICU).
I was apprehensive re the CRNE as it was, to discover I have to undertake a 5 day assessment/exams has not eased the situation, but I am determined!
Any advise from anyone who has undertaken the SEC and/or subsequent courses/additional training as a result would be greatly appreciated. Any UK trained nurses experience of the SEC?
