- 1Jul 11, '12 by NotReady4PrimeTime, RN Senior ModeratorI'm sorry... I don't know what you mean by "gnie". You must be in BC if you need to have 250 hours of supervised practice to be registered. That is a safeguard for the population you will be providing care for. It's only smart to find out all these things BEFORE you move here so that you can make informed choices.
Please refer to the Terms of Service regarding the use of text speak and English.

- 1Jul 12, '12 by NotReady4PrimeTime, RN Senior ModeratorAgain, these issues you're having have been well-identified long ago and reported here and in other forums. In the current economic climate, very few employers are willing to provide breaks for IENs with no guarantee that they'll receive any return on their investment. In the past few years, those that did were taken advantage of and ended up losing a lot of money and time by hiring people who weren't able to do the jobs they were hired for. So now the employers are very wary. It's because of this reality that the SEC assessment and the 250 hours of supervised practice requirements were introduced. Online applications allow them to screen applicants automatically by having the computerized human resources software search for keywords in the resumes and rejecting any that don't have the required keywords. It saves them money and time. It's how they do it and it's the same for everybody.
I would suggest that if you want your resume to be seen by a real person rather than just the computer software, you could improve your English communication skills. The fact that you don't use punctuation in your posts may be holding you back if you're using the same type of language in your applications. Read the postings you apply for carefully and identify those keywords that the software will be looking for. An example would be this posting: https://viha.hua.hrsmart.com/ats/js_job_details.php?reqid=2768
The posting states ICU experience is required. If a resume doesn't say anything about ICU, it will be rejected.
It says ACLS is required. If the applicant doesn't have ACLS certification, the application will not advance.
Under Specialized Nursing Skills and Knowledge, it says arterial puncture is a required skill. If the applicant hasn't said anything about having that skill, again, the application will be ignored.
So this means you have to tailor your application/resume to provide the information the software is looking for so that
your application will even make it into the hands of the person arranging the interviews. This may be why you've been unsuccessful thus far.

we also ask that text talk etc isn't used as this is a professional site
desiring to maintain professionalism, text speak (also known as chatspeak, txtspk, texting language or txt talk) is discouraged. along with using proper english spelling and punctuation, this shows respect for the owner, other bulletin board members, guests, and makes it easier to read your message.

- 3Jul 13, '12 by NotReady4PrimeTime, RN Senior ModeratorYou never mentioned that you were a new grsd. That makes it a lot harder for you and actually explains a lot. Newly graduated Canadian-born and educated nurses aren't having much more luck than you are in their job searches. With no previous nursing experience you're all competing for the same small handful of jobs. Again, this should have been obvious to you before you decided to come here since it isn't exactly a secret. Silverdragon is correct that all provinces have assessments to determine competence of IENs although they may have a different name for it... also not a secret. BC being the province most attractive to nurses from certain countries has taken it a step further with their supervised practice requirement.
