    I spent $210 CAD for registration with CRNBC. It already increased to $262.50 now.

    In my experience, US is more expensive.
    That $262.50 fee is only for the assessment of your application. You then still have to pay for the exam which is $600 as Jan has stated. So, yes Canada is much more expensive than the NCLEX exam in the US.

    I know of several foreign nurses that made the move to Canada and worked as a nurse before sitting CRNE, most provinces will issue a temp license allowing this to happen, helps the foreign nurse understand the Canadian health system

    Most will struggle; some will succeed and the rest will find themselves with no job, no license and no prospects. Temporary work permits are just that: temporary. And they're very specific. You can only work for the employer who arranged it, you have to meet the terms of the contract you signed and if you don't, then your work permit is cancelled. Passing the CRNE is high on the list of contractual obligations. Some provinces' Colleges of Nurses are a little more lenient than others and will allow a temporary license to be renewed up to two times at 6 month intervals, and if you haven't passed on the third attempt to write, you're done. Many, many concessions are being made for nurses from certain countries that are not even considered for other countries. It smacks of political expediency and discrimination. This "crisis" was predicted 20 years ago and the politicians didn't listen. Now they're reaping what they sowed all those years ago and making even worse mistakes in their zeal to "fix" it.

    It depends on the employer how much experience they want from a nurse. Major requirements for PNP is you must have a Canadian employer who will sponsor you and a full time job offer.

    Good luck!
