    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.

    Hello Lillylily,

    As an IEN and intend to work in Manitoba, I also applied for registration in CRNM and it took 2 months processing,( my requirements were sent thru courier which is faster).I am also a second courser, and I did not encounter any problem..remember they base their assessment thru your transcripts, so it is case to case basis.
    Two of the requirements are verification of practice hours and documentation of registered nursing experience and practice.
    check this site: http://www.crnm.mb.ca/applicants-int...quirements.php

    What i know is that it should be a paid experience. but it is no harm asking and trying ,so try to vist their website:
    http://www.crnm.mb.ca/
    at the lower left of the webiste, there is a box with a picture of pretty lady, you can actually talk to them online (chat) ,11pm to past midnight Philippine time.. if you have further inquiries, the staff are very helpful.

    Goodluck,
    Mcgyver

    Hello again.

    I just learned today that College of Licensed Practical Nurse of Manitoba changed their IELTS requirements since February 07, 2011.

    Here:

    OBS = 7.5
    Listening = 8.0
    Reading = 7.0
    Writing = 7.5
    Speaking = 7.5

    I was fine with Writing and Speaking before but today, after I learned the modification. I am not continuing my application. Sad.

    Hi everyone, I am an IEN who just got here in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada last January 20. Im holding a permanent residence status. Im a registered nurse in the Philippines with four years of experience. I am wondering how will I obtain a license here as a registered nurse. I have not done any language proficiency exam yet but i am already planning to. I have heard the " nursing acceleration challenge exam" too but have no idea on how/where/why and when to take it? Will i be starting from the scratch again.... pls.. i need someone to inform me for i really do not know where and how to start towards becoming a registered nurse here in canada.

    Thank you and I am really looking forward in hearing from you some information regarding my concerns.

    I suggest you read some of the threads here. The process is discussed and explained numerous times in numerous threads.

    Basically, you have to apply to the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba http://www.crnm.mb.ca/ for registration. They will assess your eligibility based on documentation provided by yourself, your school of nursing, PRC and your employer(s). One of the things that MUST be included in your application is your current academic level IELTS score (<2 years old) which is submitted directly from the testing agency. CRNM will evaluate your application and tell you what else you need to do. It's very possible you'll need to undergo a clinical competence assessment.

    The nursing acceleration challenge exam isn't something that is administered in Canada and it actually applies to nurses who are planning to attend an educational upgrading program such as LPN-to-RN or RN-to-BSN. In Canada such examinations are usually called Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR).

    Please do some reading and educate yourself. The information is all here. If you want to get to it faster use the Google search bar in the top right hand corner with the keywords "IEN Manitoba".

    hi frankiebert! i am also an IEN from davao. just filed my application this march. can i ask you how long did it take you to process the CRNM reqs? i already have my PR approval, so i was hoping i can also take the CCA (if required, but i think will most definitely be) this june 2011 since i booked my flight this june.

    i am also looking for any resources so i can prepare for CCA and CRNE... if anyone could share their experiences with these, please do. thanks much!
