I completed the SEC, the required 4 courses in 2009. I wrote the CRNE and passed, but couldn't complete the 250 hours. I was having issues that prevented me from flying to BC. My file expired Feb., the 10th, 2013 and I've been told that I can update my file and paid the 560 CD. I didn't have any problem. However, two weeks ago, the 250 hours reference requirement has been cancelled. I think that logically my status should be converted into an RN (fully registered) since my file just recently expired.
I am afraid that I will go through the same process again. I filled out the update form and signed that I may been asked to go through the SEC again!!! I also need to apply for English proficiency test again as mine is expired. Do you think I can appeal? I want to be fully registered because the only outstanding requirement has been cancelled??
Thanks and Good Luck to you ALL...

Still something you need to ask the college but if they have told you just to pay your fees you should be ok. Are you still working as a nurse? Generally you have to declare you have done x amount of hours when renewing license.
They asked me to fill out the updating form indicating that I agree to go through the SEC, if needed, and take the required courses based on the assessment. I have not worked as a nurse since I first applied. Instead, I am doing a masters in nursing in NS. This is why I was not able to complete the required hours. I will give them a call Tuesday and see what they suggest.
