I"m an RN-ADN in the States and Im planning to move to Alberta by the end of next year. I keep reading on here that nurses in Canada are required to have a BSN, but when I called the Alberta board of nursing I was told since I was from the US it wasn't necessary for me to have a BSN to work in Alberta. I'm still confused on that but I'm hoping to start a BSN program in my city in January.
Has anyone been through the application process? I know I have to submit an application with a $500 fee, then the SEC assessment and possible the CRNE.
I just want to know anyone's experience, how long it took, having to move to Alberta and being able to find a job afterwards. Thanks!
