Has anyone who is going to register as an RN, RPN or NP in Ontario written the new Jurisprudence exam? I just wrote it now and it was just terrible. And I don't even have my results yet. Frustrating and just awful.... Read More

    After looking at the titles in the documents online, it appears I am technically an "employed student nurse" at this juncture. Thanks for clearing that up.

    The differences between my dealings with CARNA in Alberta and CNO in Ontario are astounding. The CARNA representatives were/are timely, polite, helpful and quick in almost all cases. They utilized faxes, online forms and e-mails, they returned my calls in a timely manner and were generally extremely helpful, professional and accountable. The CNO has been an entirely different experience. Slow, unwilling to send e-mails or accept faxes even from other governing nursing bodies, rude, inconsistent with divulged information, condescending and in general very unprofessional. They also manage to lose two separate packages that were couriered from CARNA despite being signed for and tracked. It makes me wish I had stayed in Alberta and worked, even if it meant paying double the fees to register annually. It appears the resulting service is worth the money. It is a very marked difference, at least in my limited experience over the past 6 months.

    Quote from Ontario85
    I called both CARNA and CNO before I finished school to ask if I needed to register in Alberta before I applied for Ontario, as I knew I would be returning to Ontario to work. Both of them said no, it wasn't necessary for registration. So if it's such common knowledge, one would assume I should have been given the correct information when I asked the representatives from those respective colleges. Unfortunately, I wasn't given accurate information.
    That would be a relatively recent change. Because I live in the land of milk and money I've precepted a number of new grads from other provinces who were all required to register where they trained. One of them went so far as to delay her Ontario registration until the end of October - the end of our licensing year - so she wouldn't have to pay for the last few months that she had been working here. That's a problem when you work in an ICU and you can't actually do a large part of the work because you're a grad nurse with restrictions on your practice.

    That seems like a silly idea on the student's behalf. It would be limiting to learning and scope of practice opportunities, specifically in a critical care area. That does seem pretty short-sighted.I would have happily paid the $500+ to be registered in AB if I had been informed correctly. And CARNA at least offers two price points for registering at different times of year. It's nice that they have that pro-ration. In Ontario, it's the same fee whether you register right before renewal or midway through the year. As the CNO representative I was talking to told me, it would have seriously streamlined my registration attempt had I been given the correct information by the rep I spoke to originally. Ah well! Nothing to be done now except to become a member of both Colleges!

    Dealing with the colleges of nursing will always be frustrating. It seems that the people who have positions of authority there don't live in the real world - they have NO clue what the role of nursing in today's health care system really consists of or how we're treated, but boy they know how to siphon money out or our pockets. The people who do the actual work aren't kept in the loop and don't have good guidance either. It really doesn't matter what province you're dealing with either. One matter I was involved in with CARNA took nearly two years to resolve. Brutal. When I post explanations about process it's not in defence of them trust me. It's more to mitigate some of the anger and frustration people are feeling. Oh, and guess what... Alberta is introducing a jurisprudence exam soon too. Can't wait!

    The jurisprudence is not that bad. It's just application of the compendium and some can be directly found in the compendium. I was there when my friend took it. lol. And now you will know your result right away after you submit the exam. It will tell you PASSED. Oh well, CNO is just making money out of this. 40dollars from thousands of nurses, that's a lot. They don't even have to printout materials, or rent a venue for the exam. So that's instant money for them. Just my two cents. Goodluck to everyone taking the jurisprudence exam.

    So did you end up getting you results soon after?

    I found the jurisprudence to be tedious and redundant. Asking the same question several times is silly and there were some grammatical errors. That said, I found it to be easy and it is open book. For anyone getting ready to take it, have a tea and some snacks and answer the questions. Its not that hard, and when I wrote it I got the results instantly

    Can anyone tell me how to sign up for jurisprudence? I wrote the CRNE in February and need to write Jurisprudence. Do I have to go into the CNO to write this. I searched their website but am confused, as there does not appear to be any clear information about getting a username or password
