    Most provinces require some form of SEC these days but really you need to make your decision on where you want to live and work and meet their requirements

    Questions like this set off major alarm bells. I always find myself wondering what the person might be trying to hide, or whether there are competence issues that are going to be uncovered. Demonstrating and maintaining competency are professional responsibilities. Provinces don't "offer" SEC they require it as part of the assessment of eligibility for IENs whose educational documentation isn't concise enough to verify equivalence to Canadian education. Choosing a province to live in and practise nursing in based on whether or not one has to prove competence is not a good method. And being registered in one province where there is no SEC doesn't guarantee mobility in the future... any other province you might want to move to someday may require a SEC assessment based on their own criteria for registration. Why not just get it over with?

    Hi CarribRN! Are u now working as an RN in Manitoba or Alberta? I'm an IEN here in Manitoba but I'm planning to apply for registration in CNO. Can my application be processed even if I'm not there in Ontario? And another thing, is the process in CNO that you have mentioned back in 2011 is still the same process at present? Please advise me.


    Thanks!

    Have you taken the time to read the CNO website and requirements and how to apply for registration if an IEN?

    Each province has their own requirements and processing times are roughly the same, anything from 8 months to 18 months as a rough guide. If looking to go to another province than Quebec you have to go through NNAS unless you have worked in another province first as a registered staff. There is no quick or easy way for IEN and I am sure some of the Canadian nurses will say the same for them when moving provinces. You need to decide where you want to register and start the process

    As Silverdragon102 has said, there is NO quick way to become registered anywhere in Canada. I'm curious why you are in Québec... were you not informed that you'd need to be a fluent French speaker to work there? Who helped you with your applications for skilled worker status? You should already be well versed in what you need to do to become registered. I don't think it will be simple at all for you since you've likely been permitted to come to Canada by the Québec government (rather than the federal government) and they do everything their own way there.
