this is my first time to write and finally decided to join in the forum.
I applied for the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM) roughly by the end of 2008. and the whole year of 2009 was spent sending documents and competing other requirements (IELTS and IQAS to name a few) required by the college and as instructed by my Representative who reside in Ontario. A Canadian immigration Lawyer, who act on behalf of me with the College. and after all the long wait and the patience-is-a-virtue ideology, it was just early this year I received the result of my assessment from the College and it states that as an IEN under the Practicing Registered Nurse Registration I have to undergo a Clinical Competemncy Assessment or CCA inside Canada before I can be Eligible to sit for CRNE. CCA will provide the nurse opportunity to demonstrate that they meet entry-level compemtencies in Manitoba and is completed over 3-5 day period.
Is this similar to the SEC assessment in other provinces?
I have already received my Invitation letter addressed to the Canadian Consulate, for the said Assessment. and I am applying for a Permanent Resident/Federal Skilled Worker Category and my Representative in Canada is already working with my employer to come up for my Arrange Employment Opinion (AEO) before we can file my Immigration.
Is this the correct process?
My Representative will file it there in Ontario and not here in Manila. Is this possible? I have already sent the PR forms and documents and payments with it. and aslo my IELTS will expiring this december 2010. Will be there any issues if ever the process of my application for PR/Skilled Worker will go beyond this year? Im afraid they havent file my immigration yet since they are waiting for the HRSDC'S file number for my AEO.
Do you have any idea on how much long this will take? ive been waiting for 2 years now since I applied for CRNM. AND STILL my PR/Skilled Worker is just about to be filed. How much waiting is there more?
Please enlighten me with my dilemma.
Thanks fellow nurses
