I'm new here and I love this website. I found a lot of information! Sorry for my poor english, but i'm trying to improve
I will finish in juin my 3 years nursing study in CEGEP in Quebec and I have some questions.
1- I am really nervous about the OIIQ exam because of the clinical situations (ECOS in french), so I am thinking to do the CRNE exam in New-Brunswick. Did someone do both exams and can tell me if it is a little easier the CRNE?
2- Will my studies in Quebec be enough for the CRNE? I mean we are studying for the OIIQ exam so maybe it doesn't cover everything for the CRNE...
3- I want to do the bachelor after my CEGEP but i'm not sure if I want to do it in Montreal in 2 years (DEC-BAC) or take the online bachelor from Laurentian University (courses in french). The courses are really different from the bachelor here in Quebec. With online courses I will be able to work a little bit at the same time but I won't have practical classes. Bachelor in Montreal will be really practical with courses in healthy community and intensive care and i won't really be able to work at the same time. Because the classes are different, I don't know if it is really equivalent. What do you think I should do?
I called OIIQ and they told me I can do the CRNE if I prefer but I will have to register in the province I choose to do it and then transfert it to OIIQ. She said it would take about 3 weeks.
If some of my questions have already been answer, I am sorry and I thank you for give me the link!
Thanks to everyone that can answer me! It's appreciated!
