0May 31 by NotReady4PrimeTime, RN Senior ModeratorQuote from seenachitreshThere have been some valuable suggestions made. You will either have to work as a nurse in a jurisdiction where you are already registered (ie India) long enough to meet the safe practice requirements, or you will have to return to school at a Canadian university. CNO is actually your best source of information on this process, as it's their rules you're in conflict with. Their staff can answer this sort of question much more ably and accurately than anonymous posters on a discussion board.Hi Nichol .I am also in the same boat.CNO advised me to take Osce.

0May 31 by Nicol07Hi seenachitresh,
Yes, I also suggest that you contact CNO at first to get reliable information and ask them about "returning to India and working as an RN to meet the safe practice requirements" ... (I think email contact is more reliable than phone). If they accept then you have enough time to work and meet "the safe practice requirement" and prepare for the OSCE exam at the same time. If not, start preparing for the OSCE.
On the other hand, to meet "the RN education requirement” you need to pass the OSCE; if you pass, then CNO will ask you to complete additional education "to meet the safe practice requirements”. Course content and the number of practice hours required depend on the number of years you have been out of nursing practice. I'm still not sure, but I heard that we can complete these courses in a nursing college, BUT If you cannot pass the OSCE, to meet "the RN education requirement " you need to go to York or Ryerson university and study again and it takes a long time to be registered.
Your safe practice expired anyway, so try to focus on the OSCE.
It maybe helpful to read this page about "Sagid" who passed the OSCE and the CRNE but because her safe practice expired CNO asked her to complete 250 hours of clinical courses:
OSCE, CRNE, Safe Practice
At last, according to Touchstone Ins registration is now open for the following dates:
June 14, 2016 and November 24, 2016. Check their website:
