CRNE validity

  1. Hi all, looking for some information on CRNE, I am a uk based nurse looking to move to Canada, if hypothetically I sat and passed the CRNE in February 2012 how long would it be valid? Does it expire if I do not get a job on a certain amount of time, also do the exams take place in a particular area or can they be sat all over Canada? Any info would be greats thanks

    A pass on the CRNE does not expire. The exam currently is written three times a year - February, June and October and there are venues in most major cities in Canada. These would include St John's NL, Charlottetown PE, Halifax NS, Fredericton NB, Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, London and Thunder Bay ON, Winnipeg, Thompson and Brandon MB, Saskatoon and Regina SK, Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge and Grande Prairie AB, Vancouver, Victoria, Kamloops and Prince George BC, plus any other cities that are approved by the Canadian Nurses' Association for a particular sitting. There are more options for location for the June exams.
