I was born in the US and have lived here my entire life, I hold dual citizenship in the US and Canada due to being a first generation American with a Canadian mother. I currently have a California RN license with a BSN. I am hoping to move to Lethbridge, Alberta and was wondering how my application for and taking the CRNE, licensing, and finding an RN job will differ from other IENs being that I have Canadian citizenship?
Also, not being familiar with the nursing climate in Canada, I was hoping to get more information, particularly about Alberta. I am moving there to be close to my mother but what I have read here and from my visits, leads me to believe that it is very different than nursing (and living for that matter) in the Bay Area of California.
I have read many posts about IENs but none with my circumstances of already having citizenship yet knowing nothing about the process as I have only visited Canada.
This is is the beginning of my country transfer recon :-) any information will be helpful!
