    baijaan, as a PR of Canada you will be affected by retrogression for the US and will have a wait of several years for a immigrant visa allowing you to work in the US. If you get your Canadian citizenship you will have the option of the NAFTA visa. I would suggest you check out the state you plan to work in and see what requirements they have regarding foreign trained nurse.

    Strongly suggest a good read in the International forum

    Hi Silverdragon. I hope to get my canadian citizenship in a year's time. Then I'll have the NAFTA option. I have no state preference and it does not matter where I go as long as I get to do the NCLEX and work as an RN. Can you tell me which state has a better chance of this? Thanks.

    All I can suggest is check out some of the other forums especially the state forums. Many nurses in many states are struggling to find work

    Hi Yahy
    Unfortunately the reason i'm writing to you is because i too also just recenlty recieved news that i failed my last attempt. I am trying to figure out what to do next, and i am hoping that you have some insight that you can share. I was wondering if you are still able to write the exam in another province, becuase that is what i was told by a friend, but then i read on your blog something about not being able to write it in any other province? Also in the letter i received there was no indication of any followup letter with options! So i dont' know what is going on? I have had a tuff time in the last months, my grandfather passed away, i lost my grandmother too, and then further familial problems, i don't know what else could possibly go wrong. I hope to hear from you soon, and i hope all is better with you these days.
    Also i was curious if i am still able to write the NCLEX and where into which state i am able to enter with this option.
    Thank you so much!

    Esperanza2000 can't PM you, yahy, she only has 1 post and must have 15 to PM.

    Esperanza2000, please read the CRNE Frequently Asked Questions from the Canadian Nurses' Association: Canadian Nurses Association - FAQs. It states that "with few exceptions" candidates may only write 3 times anywhere.

    To write the NCLEX you'll have to contact the state nearest where you live and have your educational preparation assessed then receive approval to test. But writing the NCLEX doesn't guarantee you a job in the US, or even permission to work in the US. Check out some of the threads in the International forum.

    Yahy, I am confused. In this thread, you state you failed the CRNE 3 times and in this thread http://allnurses.com/nclex-discussio...ed-489748.html, you state you failed the NCLEX 3 times. So, since March of this year, you were able to register for, take and then fail the NCLEX 3 times???

    I just realized there were some links to international forums in one of the threads above, however i'm not sure if those apply to me, since i am a Canadian Citizen

    You might be a Canadian citizen, but you're writing an exam in another country. That's where you need to look for information about writing exams in another country and for help in preparing. The discussions on the Canadian forum are about issues that affect nurses lving and working in Canada - the CRNE, hiring freezes, collective agreements, dealing with Coleges of Nursing, regional health authorities, that kind of thing. You might want to read the posts in this thread too: NCLEX Discussion Forum - Nursing for Nurses

    I really feel for you because I am also a late in life student and the demands are very tuff at this phase in life. I would recommend you write the exam in another country eg USA. Don't give up you BScN statis so quickly. I would also get a lawyer and see my legal rights and loop holes. If you do get another chance, try and take a prep course, It might help. Good Luck with your future plans

    It's unlikely that obtaining legal help will yield anything but huge expense. The Colleges of Nursing have the legal authority to limit the number of attempts at the CRNE in their capacity of protecting the public. Under the various provincial Health Professions Acts, the Colleges have almost carte-blanche to develop regulations that fulfill their responsibility to the citizens of their province and to the laws of that province. The Canadian Nurses' Association is also in the process of enacting a regulation that NO province will allow more than three attempts under any circumstances. Having said that, taking a prep course AFTER the third strike seems like shutting the barn door after the horse is miles down the road.

    Hello there,
    I'm new to this site. Just read the first person's message and felt the same way. Today, I received the news. I was not successful with my last attempt on CRNE. I am devastated, beyond any words can explain.

    I am from Ontario and like everyone has told me so far. Life goes on and I need to look for other options. I am sad but I can't dwell on that fact forever. Now, my question is, I am still legible to take NCLEX even though I didn't pass CRNE? Can somebody please clarify this for me.

    Thanks so much for your time. And for what its worth, all the messages that you've sent to the first person's thread was really helpful. Thanks again!
