Hi everyone, I hope someone can help! I feel like I'm in red-tape hell! I want to move to Canada to be with my Canadian boyfriend of 3 years. I am about to qualify as a paediatric nurse (degree). As I understand it you can only register with the CNO if you are registered in your home country and a permanent resident or citizen and have a transferable degree. Well I can't become a PR until I've lived in Canada for a year, and by that time my registration in The UK will have expired!
I don't mind doing a bridging the gap for internationally education nursing course (BIEN) but I'm not sure I would be eligible without the CNOs approval and again we are going in circles!
I don't want to give up my nursing career before it has even started, I will happily do further training but I really really don't want to have to retrain from the beginning and become a student nurse for 4 years, and I can't really afford it either.
Am I making this too complicated? Is there an easier way?
Please someone give me some advice?
