    hello i got 118/120 in the february 2012 exam :-( i plan on moving to Toronto in August. Can i apply for nursing jobs until I sit the October CRNE? I've heard I can work as a Grad nurse but I dont know what that involves. Hope someone can help. Thanks.

    Depends on the province. May be worth asking the college and then you will need to apply for a temp license if they give the go ahead and pay whatever fee they charge

    From what I understand, in Ontario once you fail the CRNE, and you are working on a temporary license as a new graduate, you have your license revoked and are not able to work. I'm not sure if you are an Internationally trained nurse, if this is different. Best bet would be to contact the cno.org

    That is correct. In ON, you cannot work as a graduate nurse once you've taken the CRNE and failed. That option only exists for people who have not yet taken the CRNE and hold a temporary license. If he/she is unsuccessful, the temp license is immediately revoked.

    Hi Lols Ireland, I am also an international nurse from the uk and am due to take my exam in June 2012. What is the pass mark then? Any tips you can give me i would very much appreciate as there is sooo much to study. I have been in Canada since July 2011 and have found it very difficult to get any form of work without certification or canadian experience of some kind. I'm just hoping that when i pass (positive thinking and optimism, lol) My experience may help me get a job.

    In my experience, once it goes to the regisration committee they will look over all the information you have sent, and ask for futher information they feel they require. This does not nessecarily mean you will not qualify as long as you can provide them what they ask for. They asked for more information from me and when it went back the next letter i was sent said i was eligible to write the exam.
