    I'm sorry about the bad news but don't give up. Take time for yourself and review again. I see that you're and IEN and already have years of experience under your belt. You already have the nursing skills down so that is a major advantage for you. Having relatives who are IEN, I find that they have difficulty with the Canadian Nursing Practice Standards and Guidelines. Being a Canadian Nursing School graduate, I can attest that these comes up in every nursing examinations. I suggest you familiarize yourself with these and you will pass Don't waste time studying what you already know and study what you don't know. Try the CNO website and look under the Standards and Guidelines and RNAO for Best Practice Guidelines. Prayers always work too

    I am a IEN. There are six books that I found good but I didn't study much from the last two books as I get to know about it later. I didn't take any course for preparation.I will recommend that while reading make notes of important details so you can review them in last days.

    The Canadian registered nurse examination prep guide

    Hi guys! I am an IEN from the Philippines. I don't know what's the technique of passing the CRNE, but I think my experience and educ back in my country plus my re-entry program (1 year) here in Canada has helped me a lot with the introduction of the Canadian health care context. As an IEN, we are more of a generalist RN's back home (med-surgical, ob-gyne, icu, or, er etc etc), but their Canadian health care system is entirely different from our health care system. We also studied the community-nursing, mental health nursing, health assessment, nursing research, acute and chronic illness etc etc.. I also think that our clinical placement has greatly helped me learn the Canadian way of working in a hospital or community health nursing area.. I can still remember how hard it was to understand the Canadian health care system that it took me one whole day to read 2 chapters as I have to understand and analyze it between the lines.


    Re. review materials, I found lippincott's 2007 crne reviewer, mosby's 1st and 2nd ed of CRNE reviewer and CNA's 10th edition very helpful.

    I also think that some Canadian nursing books that we used in our school were very valuable (health assessment by jarvis, old's maternal text book, Lewis medical-surgical, community nursing book (canadian), and psychiatric mental health textbook (canadian) ----- just read Canadian nursing books.

    I'm an IEN from the Philippines and I failed on my first attempt because I didn't study well enough.
    On my second attempt I decided to enrol in a review centre and I chose Nurses Education Inc. as per recommendations of my friends.
    They are really good and very particular with the Canadian Health System. They bombarded us with 1000+ exam questions and rationales. It was stressful but worth it. I really recommend it especially to IENs so that you'll be familiar with CRNE-type of exam.
    BTW, their review book is really good and I'm keeping it for my future reference.
