Nov 28, '12I understand and respect that Canada is an independent country with their own set of rules. Also, nursing is regulated differently at a provincial level. What I was just trying to say is that in Manitoba, NCLEX is not recognized while in some provinces they say, like Alberta it is considered as an equivalent exam before. Sincerely, no offense meant there.Last edit by jam_bv15 on Nov 28, '12
Nov 28, '12Quote from jam_bv15Uhm, no it isn't. You want to work in Alberta, you write the CRNE or CPRNE. NCLEX isn't worth the paper it's written on in Canada.I understand and respect that Canada is an independent country with their own set of rules.

Nov 28, '12Quote from jam_bv15Page 6 of this link to requirements for IEN states thisI may have been mislead by what I read online (http://mercanrecruit.com/forms/chealth_manual.pdf, page 4) Thank you very much for the information.
CARNA does not accept the NCLEX-RN examination
For LPN there is nothing that I can see on the IEN application process that states NCLEX applicants are accepted in place of CPRNE

It's pretty clear: "*Please note that all eligible USA applicants will be required to write the Canadian Practical Nursing Registration Exam (CPNRE)."
MERCAN needs to update its information. But then Alberta isn't recruiting nurses, LPN or RN, from anywhere these days. There are credible rumours of layoffs in the Calgary zone at the middle management level and those nurses are going to be looking for work lower down the food chain - at the bedside.Last edit by NotReady4PrimeTime on Nov 28, '12 : Reason: more info
Nov 28, '12Just had a look at that link. It's so old, it's talking about Capital Health which ceased to exist back around 2009.
Worst decision CLPNA ever made, permitting IENs to work as LPNs while trying to qualify as RNs.
Nov 29, '12For the OP...I'm Canadian, I was trained for LPN in the US, wrote the NCLEX-PN and relocated back to Alberta.
I had to submit all my transcripts, work history etc etc to CLPNA for assessment. Once they determined that I met THEIR licensing requirement I was granted permission to write the CPNRE.
You do not need a recruiter to find you a job, do your immigration or get your nursing credentials assessed. You can save yourself money by doing this all yourself.
All the information you need is online at reliable, credible websites such as CLPNA.
