Just a quick question in regards to emergency/critical care nursing in Canada. From what I can find out on the internet there are several courses in emergency nursing and critical care nursing in Canada.
I know there are several courses such as the ALCS , TNCC and ENPC which are much like courses we have in the UK but under different name with slight differences to practice.
However I am a little confused when it comes to the CCRN and CCNC-(C) for critical care and CEN and ENC (C) for emergency nursing, I understand that one of these in each specialty is American and the other being a Canadian course for each specialty.
Is there anyway of choosing between these courses ?? I.e is one held in higher regard within Canada? I am just trying to find out information as I hope someday to work within Canada as an emergency nurse.
Any help would be great.

If you were going to work in Canada you would take the Canadian course.Th US and Canada are two different countries so it would make sense that you need the certification for the country you want to work in.
