Ok... I have a couple of questions for any Canadian graduates who went through what I'm going through! Or anyone who has any advice. I just finished writing my CRNE last Wednesday. I decided that I am going to write the NCLEX exam in addition to cover my bases so I'll have more options to work. I live across from Detroit, Michigan, but because I need my CRNE results to get the MI license (which will wake 6-8 weeks and there may be a postal strike!) I'm writing with Minnesota instead.
I paid my $115.00 to MN board of nursing, I paid for my NCLEX exam.. all I need now is my actual degree. I won't get it until my graduation ceremony next week. I need to send a copy of my degree with my university transcripts to MN board of nursing before I can get my ATT.
I just wanted to know, what process do I need to go through as well to obtain my Visa Screen? I'm assuming I'll need to pass my NCLEX exam first before I can go through with a Visa Screen, is that correct? What was your experience?
Also, I bought the Saunders Comprehensive Review NCLEX-RN. Nice book! Any advice on how to study for this exam? Prioritizing 'what' to study? And what some new Canadian grads should have a heads up on about this test? I know it's pretty straight forward - study - but I was wondering what areas do Canadian RN's seem to find is weak when studying or taking their NCLEX?
I wrote "write NCLEX" ...I know it's on a computer, haha.
