Hi. I'm a nurse here in the Philippines. I am also registered in the US. Now, I'm preparing to register and eventually take the CRNE. My questions are, how likely will the visa officer grant me a tourist visa in case i will be scheduled to take the exam? Is there a possibility that i will be denied of such even if i already have the authority to write the CRNE? My brother who is an immigrant of Canada has sent me an invitation to go there,will it help? I'm skeptical to proceed because payment i will make for the exam will definitely be forfeited because CRNE is within Canada only unlike NCLEX. Can somebody help me out. thanks a lot.
