    i am really happy for you breech. mine seems to be taken longer. my application was around the same time as yours. my employer is also interior health. they have said it will take between 3-4 weeks max. i am within this time so i guess i would just have to wait.

    This is my experience so far. mind you i am a registered psychiatric nurse so my experience might differ from general registered nurses.

    February 2007 - completed registration with the College of Registered psychiatric nurses of BC

    February 2008 - visited BC to write registration exams. not necessary but no doubt helped secure a jo.

    June 2008 - telephone interview with interior health. interview successful

    september 2008 - confirmation of job offer from interior health after references and other checks.

    september 2008 - applicaton forms for PNP emailed to me from interior health

    07 October 2008 - interior health sent PNP application to Health Match BC

    08 October 2008 - Healthmatch BC forwared application to BC ministry responsible for PNP nomination.

    21 October 2008 - BC PNP emailed to confirm application was recieved on 10 october 2008 and given a file number.

    25 october - PNP replied an email i sent enquiring how long PNP process take. they said 3-4 weeks maximum.

    present- WAITIIIINNNG....

    Hi Breech , you need to pass CRNE exam + 250 hours for immigrant application , that is you have to clear first before you submit immigrant application. ( Based on immigration lawyer ). Do you think we can start the whole process without passing CRNE exam first ? From other threads , it's not easy to pass. I'm confused
