    There's no guarantee that Saskatchewan will accept CRNBC's assessment, although they might. You may find that you'll still have to provide all the same documentation and undergo a SEC even though you've already done that in BC. Canada is still a ways away from having a seamless national system for registration assessment and verification.

    Saskatchewan has pretty much filled their vacancies now. The jobs that remain unfilled are the highly-specialized ones or the ones in extremely remote communities. So while SRNA might register you, finding work might not be so easy.

    If CARNA required experience then all the newly-graduated nurses here would be out in the cold. CARNA requires that you have a clean record, pass the CRNE and maintain clinical competence once you're registered. If you're newly graduated then you don't need experience. Once you've been working as a nurse you're expected to submit proof that you've worked as an RN for a minimum of 1125 hours (approximately 60% of the number of hours a person would work in a year as a full-time employee) over the preceding 5 years. Obviously, that's not a requirement until you've been actually working for 5 years.

    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!

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