hello everyone! just call me jhon, i'm 35 years old and still single. i passed my nursing registration in the Philippines last 1997. i never practiced nursing very much because of the low salary offered in the hospitals in my country; and applying abroad is daunting, tedious and somewhat frustrating, especially, if those you applied for were a bunch of scams, and sadly, i was a victim too. instead, i pursued to work in a government agency as a technician and earned at least enough for my living expenses as compared to being a nurse that spends more than earning. -- while working, i finished my second degree in engineering and applied for abroad in Taiwan as a machine technician, because working in the government does not warrant a permanent job unless you know someone in the high ranking officials. after my work contract abroad, i started a business in real estates and some passive income businesses. however, pursuing a career as a developer needs so much capital which i think is feasible if i go back to abroad once again, and to apply in a developed country for a much higher salary to save for my investment in the future.
i learned recently that applying for a student visa is much easier, especially in my case that needs a refresher course. my question is.. what are the steps and requirements in applying as a student nurse in British Columbia from the Philippines? do i have to apply for sec first or after my crnbc evaluations? how will i pass the interview in the canadian embassy in Philippines (student visa)? what are my chances of success in my applications based on my profile mentioned?
Updated IELTS (academic) 7.0 total | 7.0 speaking; Updated License (RN-Phil) and ongoing CRNBC credentials evaluation
For whatever comments and suggestions you could give, i will be very grateful.
Thanks for your information and clarification on this matter, I really wanted to pursue my nursing career eventhough it's been a while for me since I practiced it, but in the right place and time.
I'm willing to study for a year or two just to fulfill my RN requirements and pass CRNE. I will find a job offer and work to maintain my stay there while waiting for the visa process.
