can I seek a guidance from you.I applied for RN registration in Nova Scotia & Alberta,Canada,I'm a BSN-RN from India,NS made me eligible to write CRNE but Alberta gave me SEC.Now,if I will write CRNE from Nova scotia & get registered there then can I transffer RN license from NS to alberta straightaway
or is there any time frame required to endorse license from NS to alberta? Is this endorsement possible or I have to go for SEC plus any documentation,once I want to endorse my license to alberta.Moreover,if alberta gave me SEC & i will apply to saskatchewan,will they also give me SEC like alberta in all specialities or it will b different

My case is somehow similar. The only difference is I already took and passed the CRNE.
I am a permanent resident and got my RN license from Ontario. However, I am contemplating of moving to Alberta or Manitoba. So I recently got in touch with CARNA and CRNM to inquire on how to go about with license endorsement from another province. Both nursing boards told me that my application will be treated similar to applicants applying from Canada since I am already licensed from another province. Both did not require me to submit a TOR from my university overseas. However, both required me to submit evidence of recency of practice coming from my current employer. In addition, CARNA still required me to submit result of my IELTS exam (which I fortunately still have) whilst CRNM said it is no longer needed.
Hi CaribbRN nice to hear from u
,can u plz tell me that for RN license endorsement to Alberta,did CARNA required u to submit verification of registration from all places where were u registered in past?plus verification of employments from all places where u worked? did they asked u for SEC?Are u able to endorse ur RN license to alberta from ontarioo,as soon as u get it.
By the way plz tell me that,for registration to Ontario,CNO asked u for any SEC?can I apply for registration to CNO, when still I'm outside of canada? coz I'm not able to know how to meet their requirement of providing proof of PR/Landed immigration status? I applied for PR in Nov.2010 & recieved AOR from CIC.
sorry!!! I asked u too many questions but I will appreciate ur reply....keep posting till ur journey finishes of endorsement to Alberta.

Hi CarribRN, r u from which country. In CNO also we haveto submit license verification from all countries where we have obtained a license to practice as an RN as well as employment verification from all previous and current employers?I have Valid IELTS meeting CNO requirements.
How much time CNO will take to give assessment,I'm a BSN graduated IEN,holds US-RN license in US as well,will CNO makes me eligible to write CRNE.I hope I'll get my PR by the end of this year-in fast track post June,2010,by grace of god-how should I proceed,can u suggest me.Its nice sharing with u.reply me in ur sparetime.I found your guidance very useful-million dollar words!!!
God bless u.
Yes, you have to submit a license verification from all countries where you have been registered as an RN. That means you'll get one from India and the US. But it would be wise if you email CNO and request for application packet first so you'd know exactly what types of document you need to submit and when you will have to submit it.
If your application is complete and CNO will not ask you to provide additional documents to support your application, the whole assessment process can be finished in 3 months. However, that is not always the case for IEN's as more often than not, additional requirements are needed from them. Mine took 8 months to complete.
Holding a US license has no bearing n your application and I wouldn't be able to say if you will be made eligible as only CNO can decide on that.
Just wondering though, why not just take the CRNE since you got your approval already from Nova Scotia and just apply for license endorsement to the province where you wanna work and settle later on?
Anyways, goodluck on your application.
