International nurses longer registration?

  1. 0
    I had sent in all of my application in October! And it's still not finished. I had to write the jurisprudence exam as well because my application was not finished being processed.

    My plan was to write the exam feb 6. I had everything in intime. But they say no.
    Why is it taking so long? I can't get any answers. I am a Canadian citizen. But educated in Sweden. So why is it taking so long?

    I too have been addressed by the cno in a demeaning manor. They get mad when I call to inquire and tell me they will be in touch. But they never do. It's been almost 4 months. And I'm probably not going to be able to write in feb.

    Very frustrated!!!!!!!!

    Generally the processing time with the CNO and International Educated Nurses can take up to 12 months sometimes even longer.

    Nursing Colleges task forever to do anything.<br><br>I moved from Alberta to BC.&nbsp; Despite being educated in Alberta and having over four years work experience, it still took the BC College over four, closer to five months to evaluate my credentials and issue a license that was going to be valid for four weeks that would then require renewal!<br><br>It's not just foreign nurses that get screwed around.

    Your citizenship isn't pertinent in this situation baby_gumma. What CNO is interested in is where you were educated. They have to do a thorough assessment of your education as compared to that received in a Canadian nursing school to ensure you will meet minimum requirements. And that takes time. 4 months isn't really a long time within the scope of what they are required BY LAW (the Regulated Health Professions Act: 74.213.160.105/oahai/Acrobatfiles/regulatedact.pdf )to do in order to ensure their registrants are properly educated and competent.
