I would really appreciate any advice on trying to complete the registration process in Ontario in order to take the CRNE. I applied back in April 2011 and have given the CNO every piece of documentation they have requested except for a reference for a post I held for 9 months at the beginning of my career nearly 12 years ago as my employer at the time no longer exists. The CNO have also requested the course description for my initial course, the DipHe in Nursing Studies, Adult, even though they have the transcripts of that course and the BSc which I have also completed.
I am getting frustrated that even though I am trying to provide all of the requested information I am unable to complete the CNO requirements. The most frustrating thing is that even though I have over 12 years experience, a BSc degree in Nursing and various post graduate diplomas the CNO can't even make the decision to allow me to take the CRNE exam which would prove that I was competent to work as a nurse in Ontario.
Have any of you had a similar experience and how did you get around it? Any advice would be appreciated.
