    The best thing to do is check with the province to see if NCLEX will be accepted after 2014 when the new style exam starts in Canada

    Don't see how NCLEX will work up here then.

    Different lab values and drug names.

    So how do you plan to get a work permit here in Canada? Have you applied for one yet?

    I bet you'll be finished your BSN before you get a Canadian work permit.

    That could be the case, but I don't I need a job offer first to be able to apply for a work permit? I know the CRNE stuff will take a while and I would like to be able to work doing something in the meantime when I eventually move to Canada.

    Yes you need a job offer for work permit or even a TN visa. You cannot work as a nurse until the college makes you eligible to sit CRNE and allows you to apply for a temp license. You could always apply for pr and the new list should be released in the new year or there are other routes you could take for pr depending on province I suggest checking CIC website out
