I am a pre-nursing student in the States. I am looking at and mostly interested in an Associate Degree in nursing at a community college at US-Canadian Border.
I plan to move to Canada permanently after I get US RN license. I looked at the website of nursing association of Alberta, the educaiton requirement for RN is diploma or BSN, and I heard in 2009 Alberta will require BSN to sit for license exam. Hopefully I can graduate in 2007. My quesiton is, do they consider ADN in US the same as diploma? Will I be able to sit for RN exam in Alberta?
check out the canadian nursing board web site on how much it will cost us to have them review our records from the us and pay for the test there! it is ridiculous!
the yearly fees are higher if you are not an alberta graduate too...
now- i am confused about this salary chart- as a rn with a "diploma" (adn in the us) are we considered "registered nurse" or "undergraduate nurse" on this chart (after we take the canadian boards)??
