Dear all, I just took my CPNRE in Sept. and looking forward to hearing a positive outcome. I've almost completed my Perioperative Nursing Certificate and will be doing my clinical placement in Winter semester at one of the local hospitals. Ive also completed my Health Assessment and Medication Administration Certificates. Currently taking some mental health classes as well. I'm trying to find my way around here in Toronto in terms of getting a job as an RPN. I'm new in Canada (USA RN) and was wondering about the rpn opportunities in the GTA area. I know it's going to be not easy to find an ideal job but will I be able to get a job within a month or two? I need a job ASAP. Any suggestions or comments are highly appreciated. Thanks,

The OP would not be grandfathered in since this was from 2012.
In Alberta if you graduated from a diploma programme prior to 2009 (when the BScN became the entry to practice) you are grandfathered.
The OP never came back after these posts. If you read all of her posts on the subject, she was in the US as an international student, wasn't able to stay and hopped up to Canada. For all we know she's moved on to yet another country.
