    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!!
