CNO Jurisprudence Exam - page 2

Has anyone who is going to register as an RN, RPN or NP in Ontario written the new Jurisprudence exam? I just wrote it now and it was just terrible. And I don't even have my results yet. Frustrating... Read More

    Fellow colleagues I just paid my application fees, and i recieved a separate acount from the CNO where I can write the jurisprudence Exams. How difficult is it?. Has any one writen the Exams and recieves his or her results yet?. I am RN and trained outside of Canada and currently living and working in Germany as RN.

    Uggghhh this is so frustrating! I wrote my jurisprudence exam last Tuesday and still haven't received any results. Also spoke with a customer service rep who spoke to me like I was insane for even calling to inquire!

    I write my CRNE on February 6, so I know I have time, but it would be nice to know how I did - especially considering the difficulty of the exam itself.

    I agree.

    But it's the same way they do the actual registration exam. I feel, however, this is a really poor way to allow people to practice. There should be a set standard, you must know at least 70% or 60% of the material before you can practice and not, you know about as much as the average person taking the exam this year. Like what happens if the average for the people taking it that year is like 40%, do you really want nurses who know only 40% of the material practicing?
    I think reform is in order, but in terms of the jurisprudence exam I just find it annoying at this point. However, I am sure once the work the kinks out and have had a few test runs it will run a but more smoothly.

    Hi rejrayo_nurse,I'm in a similar situation to you, only without the lost form. All of my forms were in by Dec 19th 2012. When I called and asked to speak to a manager about it, I was rudely told no. Can I ask how you were able to get in touch with a customer co-ordinator? I am wondering how I may do the same, find out if I need to write the ridiculous test, and plead my case.Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thank you.

    Hi ONnurse85, I received an email this week by CNO that I am fully registered(Thank god they found my missing form). Check your email daily if you listed your email on the registration forms. I have a feeling they will tell you by email first then mail you the registered forms.

    Even when I emailed the customer coordinator. He basically shrugged me off and told me to "wait" for their response as usual. I tried to message you privately but wasn't able to if you want more info. Or let me know your email.

    Thanks for the info! I appreciate it I've now realized that you had already filled out the actual registration form and paid your application fees, while I am still waiting for the "ok" of their assessment so I can apply. They have my CPIC form but haven't let me officially apply yet.It looks like I will be writing the test and awaiting results like everyone else. Hopefully my new employer is willing to wait. Has anyone who has written received thier results yet? It looks like I couldn't have possibly applied at a worse time. Christmas holiday, renewal time, test that they didn't bother to properly prepare... are we expected to wait indefinitely for these results? It's more than a little ridiculous!

    For everyone who wrote the exam:I just spoke to a staff from yardstick who said that they have to wait for EVERYONE to write the exam before they even begin to review the results! She said she had no idea how long that may take.Who knows how long we may be waiting?

    that doesn't make sense though bc everyone has to write the exam for different reasons, not just new grads with the crne. It can't be everyone maybee its just enough of a sample size to generate the bell curve

    Either way, it's still an indefinite waiting period with no guarantee of when it will be dealt with.Not professional.

    When I handed the assessment in they mailed me a letter quoting they received it and wait 4 weeks from the date on the letter which I did and they also informed me that they were going to send me the registration R-1 form and they didn't. Therefore, I had to call them and email them countless times for the last form. Luckily, a nice customer representative replied to me asap via email and sent me the form to make the December 31 deadline. She let me faxed it to her and then I mailed my CPIC. I wish all customer rep. were like her, she actually cared. For a fact, without her I would still be waiting for who knows what. Also, once the last form (R-1) is handed in to CNO, it usually takes 15 days for them to process. You will be sent an email regarding the Jurisprudence Exam.

    Good luck everybody.

    I wrote the jurisprudence on Wednesday, no results, no indication of when results should be expected. As far as whats on it goes to those who were asking, you sign an agreement saying you wont share what's on the exam, but having said that... the CNO has very fairly and accurately indicated the required study materials for the exam on their website. It may be a loooot of printing to do... but for me it was worth it to have all the BPG's and all the legislation at my fingertips, neatly sticky-noted. This helps with the more difficult specific questions but its in there! Get good at flippin'!

    I called the CNO today and they stated that they do not have a date or time when the exams will be marked. Pretty frustrating when just waiting for that in order to get a Temp license..
