Are you posting about BCIT in Burnaby, Canada?
There threads ads on this in the Canadian forum
In Missouri, IV certification is part of the LPN programs, so there was no need to get the cert after.
Once I moved to a different state, they didn't honor that part of my program, so I had to get the IV cert again. No pay raise, it just opened up more job opportunities.
Here in Canada, my hospital employs LPNs in the NICU. We have one of the largest NICUs in wester Canada.
Not an area I've ever had a desire to work.
What at do you mean by "residency requirements"?
No. Every year my scope of practice increases and no raise.
Stability. We all want it but it's hard to come by.
As a new grad, at one point, I had four casual jobs to get the hours I needed. It took three years to get a permanent job.
Its a tough job market across the nation and you sometimes have to take what you can get, to get the experience to make you more marketable
Why is your husband only working PRN?
One of you has to bring home the benefits.
HOw much is your childcare currently costing?
Haven't seen a diploma to BSN course promoted in years. The degree became mandatory in 2009 in my province. That was also the last year a diploma RN graduated.
What's a PND?
The companies recruit privately.
Since the Fort Mac Fire and the decline in the oil industry, it's pretty much a bust.
We are even employing Ft. Mac nurses in Calgary and Edmonton who were displaced.
Good luck for your info hunt.
Are there class options available for extra cost? or all courses are on line only? what extra challenges are there?
You read the terms of service when you joined to post this. We do NOT give medical advice here.
Are you a NP that is looking to specialize?
Or an RN who is looking at a job in a urologists
FYI, doctor's offices always pay less than hospitals and rarely match union rates.
In Ontario, there are universities that require SOME university education (ie, 60 credit hours which is equivalent to 2 years of a full courseload). I'm not sure about other areas.
How would you fund your education here?
Tuition is roughly doubled for overseas students.
