    LPN requires a license, you cannot work in that role if you do not have a license for it.

    Also be aware that one has only three attempts at the CRNE, if you do not pass by the three tries, then the visa is cancelled and one has to leave the country and will be unable to remain there.

    If you do not pass the CRNE, you would be working as a nursing assistant only, someone that is unlicensed.

    You dont have to worry about that suznne, We know ourselves best and we will try to pass the CRNE right away.

    I would also like to inform you that I garduated Cum Laude, My NLE rating is very satisfactory,I already passed the NCLEX-RN CA (not really wanting to work in the U.S. but just wanted to gauge my knowledge since NCLEX is offered here in the Philippines). I also passed IELTS with a band score of 8.

    I'm not the one who posted the nursing asst and LPN roles upon failing the CRNE. But as the thread starter, I just gave you my assurance that we will do our very best to pass the CRNE.

    The visa is called a Temp work permit (TWP) and you should find all info on the Canadian immigration website. Yes you can get job with a TWP and most hospitals will have awareness on the application and process as you will need a LMO from the hospital
    silverdragon,

    I already read from the Citizenship Immigration Canada about Temp Work Permit. It says there on the "how to apply" section that I should have a written job offer from an employer in Canada as part of the process. How can I find for an employer? Or can I find an employer to give me a job offer granting that the Nursing Boards will give me eligibilty to take the CRNE and approve my temporary registration while I'm still here in the Philippines?

    Thank you.

    What you need to do is apply to the hospitals in the province you want to live in. They upon accepting you will either provide you with a LMO or have to apply for one and then give you the copy when it comes through (everyone in most cases has to have a LMO) You then send in your application with LMO plus fees and at some stage they will request you attend a medical. Once everything is complete you will receive a letter stating you meet TWP requirements and that your file will be added to the data base so when you fly to Canada at immigration you will go to a second desk where you will be issued TWP. Keep the letter as you will need to show it at immigration. This can all be done from the Philippines

    Hope this helps

    Which country? As a general rule LPN there is no shortage so does not meet immigration requirements

    This surely helps a lot silverdragon.By the way, What's LMO?

    Can I start my application to the hospitals in the province where I want to live even though I'm not yet eligible for CRNE and Temporary Registration? Or I should start applying to hospitals after I'm already eligible to sit CRNE and already have temporary registration?

    Thanks and best regards to you.

    You can work under a TWP for a few month before applying for PR. We are looking at applying in the next couple months and have already been here since Mar, saying that I am not working at the moment, just waiting to hear from NS nursing. Once I know what is happening I will also be applying for TWP, DH is the one who has TWP at the moment
