I got my sec result today.. I wish i just can go back for a refresher course.. What are the grounds for the commitee to decide to take the 4years program instead of 1? Thank you all.. Committee will likely make one of two decisions:1)***** You must complete a new Bachelor of Nursing Degree:* In this case, you would be eligible for registration upon completion of a BSN program that is recognized by CRNBC's Board.* You can find a list of recognized BSN programs on our website. **After completing such a program, you could re-apply for registration.**2)***** You must complete a Re-entry to Practice Program: In this case, you would be eligible for registration upon completion of a Re-entry to Practice Program.* You can find information about re-entry programs on our website. *

SEC assessments are required for those applicants whose education isn't easily determined to be equivalent to that of Canadian-educated nurses. The point of the assessment is to evaluate the applicant's knowledge base and skills performance compared to any entry-level Canadian-educated nurses. We all know that nurses don't stop learning when they graduate from nursing school
, and the SEC gives applicants the benefit of the doubt. If you're being told you much complete a full four-year baccalaureate degree to be registered in BC it means that your educational preparation, knowledge base and skills performance do not meet minimum requirements for entry to practice. A determination that the applicant needs the re-entry/refresher program means that the basics of competence are there but there may be gaps that can easily be filled by a one-year refresher. Nurses in Canada MUST perform at a high level of competence and autonomously in a very technical environment. That is why IENs have such complex assessments.

I didn't get the response: what was the result of your SEC? First part, second or both for your choice?
