    ok so its not true what hearsays that all IEN's nurse should undergo the assessment
    There are IEN's that have had to SEC but a lot will depend on transcripts. Cases are dealt with on an individual basis so we can't say one way or another. All you can do is wait to hear from the college.

    hi i'm also an IEN from the Philippines i graduated last April 2008 and i already had 2 years experience as an ICU nurse and in medical surgical area. I also obtained my licensed in state of Vermont last 2009.I'm working now in Makati as utilization management reviewer basically its like call center job but they require US license nurses. I found out that i need to have proof immigration in Canada before i can send my application but there's no problem with that cause i'm going to apply for my PR as family sponsorship by my Fiance next year probably February or march 2011. .

    My 1st question is if i'm going to apply next year as IEN in CRNM do i still need to take the IELTS exam again? I took my IELTS last July 2009 and it will expire July 2011.

    2nd can i also put my current work in the form "request of verification of practice hours" even if its not bed side care?

    3rd is there any IEN from the Philippines who took the CCA also known as SEC assessment n Manitoba can you give us some feedback about the said assessment?

    4th Do you think that its better for me to apply as LPN first before doing the RN application? cause i also consider it if in case my RN application will take too long.

    5 thIs there anyone from FEU manila?

    1/ As long as your IELTS is current CRNM will accept the results but they have to come from the testing agency.

    2/ Verification of practice hours refers ONLY to nursing work so no, your call centre work does not apply.

    4/ NO! I'm quite sure that Manitoba does not allow RNs to work as LPNs, and the application process for LPNs is similar to the one for RNs so will take about the same amount of time. There would be no advantage to doing this.

    Hi chengzz 1110!

    I am also planning to apply in Manitoba since I already got hold my PR visa last month. Is the SEC assessment new to them? Based from what I've read before they are one of the most lenient in giving eligibility to take the CRNE, though am not sure if there are changes now. Have you heard of a Filipino applicant who was told to take the "CCA"? I am just curious. Are you with Medicall? I am also considering applying there since I am Illinois licensed. I was Oct 2006 graduate but was licensed locally only last February 2010. My concern now is will I be given an eligibility even if I have zero nursing experience. I hope that people who have applied in Manitoba can share their experiences. Thank you.

    Manitoba calls their assessment the CCA rather than SEC but they're the same thing. It's not new, has been in place for about 2 years. They used to be quite lenient but having been burnt in 2001 by a significant number of IENs using Manitoba as a stepping stone to the US, they've tightened up their program considerably. You may be successful with the CCA and be eligible to write the CRNE in Manitoba, but your lack of experience and the lengthy period between graduating and registering at home will hold you back in finding a job. Employers are not desperate to fill positions right now and are bing much more selective than they were a year ago. Be prepared for some difficulty.

    Hi!

    Any updates from those who had applied in Manitoba? What are the chances of Filipino nurses being advised to undergo CCA? Anyone?

    Hoping you could share your experiences and insights since there are not so many threads you could read about application with CRNM. Thank you.
