    Yes you still have to sit and pass CRNE to work in Canada. NCLEX is not accepted. You may have problems though finding a employer in Canada if you have no experience. Suggest you read post 122 in this thread especially the link Pinoy care visa center - Page 13- Nursing for Nurses

    You need to know that Canadians resent being used as a stepping stone to the US. We'd rather have nurses that WANT to be here and work in our facilities rather than those waiting out retrogression.

    like to clarify this issue,first if you are applying for an immigrant visa as a nurse and reach the 67 pts the you can migrant here, but to work here as a registered Canadian registered then you have to be pass the CNA exam which is more difficult than the immigration process,in short Immigration and CNA are two different and independent office.There are many nurses here(filipinos,swiss,nigerian,british) who the follow same process no more no less, so many nurses here have to work as nursing aides while they are still on the process of getting their license.What fiona and jan are saying in this site are true and could be sometimes depressing but a reality check for all nurses who wants to work here,even if you pass the CNA exam your nursing experience in your home country comes in to place because nursing jobs are getting difficult to get.

    My advice while applying for your immigrant visa, submit your papers for assessment at the provincial nursing board of your choice.Canada wants us to work and succeed in our profession and we owe this to them.
    Thanks! Being a voice of reason is never fun.

    There is no easy way to do things. And yes, nursing jobs are still hard to get.

    if you take a good look at the website it advertises that they can help you get to canada faster through a "fast track visa".there is no such thing.no agency can help you jump ahead of the line or garantee you acceptence or a job.all you are doing is paying big bucks to have someone else fill out papers that you can fill out yourself.

    Hello silverdragon, I am IEN having done my BSN and MN from india, on PR having more than 12 yrs of exp in Nursing,waiting for CRNE June results in Toronto.I have applied to N number of agencies and LTC for PSW jobs to get canadian work exp. bt in vain...no reply from them.I need your guidance how to go about it ,as Im feeling very insecure that even if I pass the exam..become RN...still not get a job or dont know how long I have to wait.Read all the threads abt availability of jobs scenarios and feeling really depressed....

    When I see the statistics published by Canadian Licensing and governing bodies,reports backhome in India indicating there is nursing shortage in canada,reason also Nurses are Most Demanding Jobs included in Federal skilled worker class for permanent residence, but here comments of the local students and nurses are opposite...I am confused

    Although nurses are still on the skilled workers shortage list you have to be aware that things in some provinces are more difficult than others. As well as sending resumes have you tried contacting anyone and networking? I am in the process now of looking for work and I am seeing less jobs advertised where I live but trying the best I can.

    Thanks for your response Silverdragon.Yes I did send my resume for psw jobs to have some canadian exp before i can work as an RN here, bt got no reply.I am waiting for my CRNE results to apply for RN positions. Hopefully,from next week the Real job hunt will begin.Do you know how long CNO takes to give registration to a candidate after having passed the exam?I have been to HFO and CARE office but my needs are quite different.Both organisations are doin a great deal of job in helping IEN for language support,registration guidance bt I had already landed here in canada with my CRNE admit card in hands.My need is to get assistance and help in getting job here..Lets see how it goes... Again many thanks
