i think, there will be a long way from an experienced european nurse to an unexperienced canadian nurse.
it´s not easy, but....
- Apr 28, '08 by psherpaA question, if I am a foreign student who recently got his license from the US, can I apply directly to CRNBC for temporary license before I take the October exam?
Or do I actually have to pass Canada's nursing board exam in order to get temporary license?
- Apr 28, '08 by wasupAfter CRNBC finishes its evaluation of your application and approve it, you receive the temporary registration. Than you have several month to pass the CRNE.
- Apr 29, '08 by psherpaThanks there, it helps a lot. Will be happy to move to Vancouver if that is the case. Mucha Gracias!
- May 21, '08 by chezieI was just wondering, when you apply for a job under your interim permit/temporary registration, you use the title RN temporary/s right? Lets say you apply online and usually institutions have positions for RN.. are you qualified to apply for that? or...? because I've read that if you're under an interim permit you're not really an RN yet, you're like an extra to the team and you have to have someone supervise you.. so how does one go about applying for a job while under an interim?
I've scheduled to take the october 2008 exam here in bc and haven't been using my interim permit (well i haven't filled out the form coz' sadly I can't find an employer willing to hire me)
anyways thanks to those who can give some food for thought
- May 21, '08 by suzanne4Most employers want to see that the exam is actually passed, just like here in the US.
You need to tell them that you have an interim permit when you apply, just as you would do anyplace else in the world.
It is getting harder and harder to get hired with the temporary permit at least in the Vancouver area, you may have better luck actually in other cities.
- May 22, '08 by janfrnWith an interim permit you would be considered the equivalent of a graduate nurse. You can't use the title RN until you've passed the CRNE and received your registration.
- May 22, '08 by chezieoh.. ic. yeah, i sort of noticed the difference between trying to get a job in say surrey than in vancouver (outside the nursing field though).. anyways, thanks for the advice. I'm thinking I'll probably wait til' I've gotten my results before I try again..
