    You will have to obtain an application from CARNA and have all of your documentation assessed just like you did in BC. The process could take as long as several months. Although you have a BC registration as an LPN Alberta is still going to treat you like any other IEN. Contact them for more information. Their contact information can be found here: Links to the Provincial Colleges of Nursing

    Hey guys, sorry I've been away from allnurses.com for a while for various reasons I won't get into right now. But I just decided to check back in today and saw that this thread was active again.

    Just figured I'd let you know that I found a full-time job with AHS at Foothills hospital and am loving it!! LPN's here in Alberta are given much more responsibility and respect here in Alberta compared to BC and certainly compared to NB. Foothills hospital has proven to be a great place to work and I look forward to spending many more years there Good luck to any of you looking for jobs in Calgary. There is definitely a lot of opportunity here, shouldn't be hard to find a job.
