CNO Jurisprudence Exam - page 9

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... Read More

    ONnurse85: I need to get my temporary license very urgently too, since I have a job I need to start on Feb 25th. One of my friends called CNO today, and was told RPN applicants can no longer apply for temporary license, because they are sending out the results of the written exam now. If that is true, I would have to wait two more month to start my new job. So frustrating...On the other hand, CNO customer service representatives don't know what they are doing half of the times. I'll call them to verify this tomorrow.

    Go onto the Internet and look up Yardstick software .. then click onto online learning. You then get to "live chat" there is someone who can advise you. I contacted them several times and finally found out yesterday they had been sending my results to an incorrect (actually totally different email) I ceratinly would not sit and wait. You should have it now. By the way I passed so very relieved... good luck..

    I'm sorry, beensnowing! I feel your pain. Today I found out that for 3 months nobody at the CNO has bothered to tell me that I either need to be registered in Alberta first before applying in Ontario, or instead they will take months to see if my educational degree meets competencies and standards (I took a nursing degree in western canada at a university).*This after 3 months of "assessing". What have they been doing for 3 months? Napping? Marking the Jurisprudence exam? Haha. These people answer to no one and are by far and large the most incompetent organization I have ever encountered. It's embarassing to a profession and a terrible first exposure to a "nursing governing body". What a joke. Thanks for letting me vent, all!*

    That's not news. All the Colleges require Canadian applicants to have registered in the province where they were educated. You can write the CRNE anywhere in the country with permission from both the College in the province of education and the chosen province, but you still have to register in the province where you got your training. Now, having said that, it would appear that you are not yet a registered nurse but your username is ONnurse85. Are you using a restricted title? Or are you also an LPN?

    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. It would have avoided multiple months of waiting (3), an unnecessary jurisprudence examination writing and a lot of stress had I been given the correct information at the outset. I will address my username issue via the admin help desk as suggested. Thanks for pointing out the violation of the terms.

    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.

    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.
