i've been considering getting my degree in psychiatric nursing, however a few things give me pause. from what i can gather rpn's are pretty much a western canada thing, is this correct? also, i have family in the u.s and i would like the option of working down there for a while my kids are still small before we settle here in vancouver. my wife is an rn so she would be eligible for the tn visa. i also really would like to live in toronto for a while if the u.s thing didn't work out. in any event we do plan on settling here but would like to take advantage of the fact that with nursing travelling to other places seems easier than with other professions. i do not want to get a degree in something that pretty much limits me to working only in b.c. my other option is applying to ubc for the accelerated bsn program. i would prefer that as it's shorter, however, it's less of a "sure thing" then the psych nursing. i have a b.a in psych and have worked at the supervised injection site so i do think i have a very good chance of getting into the ubc program..but i can't be sure. so is there an equivalent to the psych nursing degree in the rest of canada/the u.s?
