    Ty - would it better to apply for the exam first before contacting the province? Or should I just make an enquiry?? Sorry, really stupid/simple questions... I just find the process isnt at all clear!

    Plus, I only have a diploma in General Nursing, so was planning to get my degree in midwifery. Would this make a difference re my registration??

    Oop, no more thing - im currently studying anaesthetic nursing, and have obtained 4 weeks exp. in paeds and 4 weeks in obs. I completed 4 weeks in a mental health environment during my initial nursing training. Hopefully this will be sufficient experience to satisfy the College's requirements!

    As long as the hours cover both clinical and theory and is on your transcripts then it is up to the college whether they accept it or not.

    You could do either but the college will need a copy of transcripts to make their decision

    I had a look at the website re requirements for registration - should I just make a enquiry and send along my transcripts for review? Its says when applying you need Canadian citzenship etc.. which of course I dont have, so I guess I should just make an enquiry....

    Updating; okay so have applied for application pack to begin assessment process - got alittle twang of excitement then but Ill try to keep things in perspective

    Ty Silverdragon - hope you don't mind if I keep you updated...

    I believe Alberta is slowing thawing the freeze but there may still be restrictions on who can apply

    Some jobs are opening up to the public, BUT they are usually small part time positions or in units that want experience.

    Still a lot of Alberta grads unemployed as well.

    You really need to contact the College of Nursing in the province you want to go to. You have to be made eligible to take the CRNE by the Province you're applying to. They all have very comprehensive website that will contain all the info you need.

    Not all Provinces require a degree........yet. It may come to that but right now it's by no means all of them. You will have to research their websites to find out that info yourself. Midwifery is a growing specialty in many Canadian Provinces, so you may even find your midwifery a help, rather than a hindrance. However, again it's up to you to check out the various Provinces, decide where you would like to live (they are all very different) and take it from there.

    It's not a complicated process at all. Just a lot of paperwork, Internet searching & a fair deal of time & money!!
