LPN or RN - page 5

Hello everyone! I'm an IEN here in Manitoba and I'm having a hard time deciding whether to pursue LPN or RN first because many people here were telling me that RN processing takes 2 years. Is it true? I want to be an RN as soon... Read More

    Are you scheduled for CCA already? I just received a letter from CLPNM. I am scheduled for CCA this June. It takes 1 day to complete. No written exams included. I know someone who is scheduled for CCA (CRNM) On September this year yet the results of credentials assessment came out October of 2012. It's almost 1 year waiting time.

    I don't know yet. I have to wait for the person in charge from Health Science Center (CCA will be held there).

    I'm considering applying for LPN. CRNM will be the one to provide with the required documents if that happens. When did you start applying for LPN?

    I completed all the CLPNM requirements by Dec 11 last year. By Jan 30 I already have the assessment results. So roughly 6 weeks. How long did it take before the results of your CRNM assessment came out? No harm on trying the CLPNM assessment since the documents transfer fee is just around 30$ right? Good luck!

    It was just 3 days. Can you believe it? What makes the process long is the waiting period.

    3 days from the time you completed the requirements? That was fast! And I thought the 6 week wait for CLPNM assessment results was fast. The requirements I lack are the ones from IQAS (which I guess takes several weeks to complete) and NCLEX RN verification from US. They're making almost everyone take the CCA so we better prepare as early as now

    Yes! I'm sending here my old college nursing books from the Phil. I hope you do well on your CCA! ;-)

    Everything is turned in except for the documents my school was supposed to send to CLPNA. I called my school and mailed those documents to the nursing department in early January. Today when I called I was told the documents were finally sent out on Feb. 12. As soon as CLPNA gets those documents, then they can begin my assessment!
