Hi

Just a little advice from people i ahve spoke to who were part of teh project 2000. You dont need to amke up any hours all you need to do is just get your transcript sent to the board of nursing in the state you want to work so you can get your ATT to test for the NCLEX.

good luck with it

missed this. you may not have to make any hours up, best is get CES from CGFNS to which your nurse transcripts are assessed and if you send it from CGFNS to BON that you want to work they will decide whether you need to make any hours up. Check out the sticky Primer to working in the US in the international forum, all information required is there but be prepared for atleast 18 months to 2 years process which may vary depending on whether retrogression has lifted for nurses or not

Just a quick question. Where are you looking to move to?

I trained Project 2000 and moved to Alberta Canada. CARNA assessed my hours (theory and practical ) and I did not have to make up any time. So my advice is to actually submit your transcripts to wherever you are planning to go and see what they say. Good Luck

Hi, im working on trying to get a job as a mental health nurse in canada. I have done my registration with CRNBC (did proj 2000), so like you I did not have to make up hours. I was just wondering what Alberta is like. I have been set on working in vancouver but feel i need to know the other provinces too. Out of curiosity, what is the salary like, ie how much roughly would a nurse with 5 years experience take home bi-weekly.

Thanking you in advance for the info

I cannot for sure say what you would make bi-weekly, but here is the link to the UNA page whcih gives the current rates of pay.

http://www.una.ab.ca/conferences/Nursing%20Salaries/Nursing%20Salaries%20Main%20Page

The unions and the AB government are currently in negotiation for new contracts and nurses will be voting on July 11th about accepting or not. The new contract would include a 5% increase yearly for three years. Don`t forget that there are other ocnsiderations other than just basic pay. Shift premiums, vacation time and benifits also vary from province to province.Alberta is pretty high on all the sections (especially shift premiums!) except holiday times. It was a real culture shoick for me when I discovered that holidays for new staff are 15 days plus bank holidays :( But I understand that BC only gets 20 plus bank holidays, so not really much different. When you do get a job offer-negotiate, negotiate,negotiate!!! Some employers will recognise "seniority" from outside Canada! This seniority works towards your holiday entitlement and is the final deciding factor for vacancies.

Anyway hope that helps. Good Luck.

If you are interested inmore info about AB, send me a PM.
