    I am in Alberta,Canada with my spouse. I HAVE BEEN IN NURSING ALL OF MY LIFE. I have my nursing license in six different states, but applied to Alberta. It seems it may take forever. You are luckly! One of the states I hold my license in is Washington state. I have researched it already. The hospitals pay around 46.00 u.s. an hour in Washington state.Tell me is the Canadian exam difficult?. The U.S. one is very easy! It's completely different. Here it 's all psychosocial. In the U.S. it's Tx,, Dx's etc. I 'm worried that it will be difficult to pass. I'm probably old enough to be your mom. My oldest is 32 years old. I also have a daughter in nursing in Ontario,Canada. I wrote R.P.N. EXAM AT 21 YEARS OLD .I let that license go to boring for me . I went to school in the U.S. because a U.S. hospital payed for it.I've been an R.N six years. While waiting for Alberta paperwork I will probably work in either Montana or Washington state. The fact that I'm dual makes it easier for me. After all when you have six kids you have to put to college. YA have to work where ever you can! My mom once adviced me not to have such a large family ,now I know why lol! YOUR ALWAYS BROKE! LOL
    P.S. please do excuse my typing as computers and all are new to me. Thank-you all for your help. I'm learning something new on this site every day!

    Hi Everyone,
    Praise be to God! I passed the exam. I was worried as I am an IEN and I was thinking that I made a lot of mistakes when I went back to my books after the exam. I am so happy that I passed. It would not have been possible without the grace of God. I am just very thankful to Him. He has provided me with the strength and the endurance and I studied very hard as the Canadian RN exam is different, specifically on Ethics and Nursing judgment. The Compendium has helped me a lot and the prep guide, 3rd and 4th editions. Thank you for this thread. Btw, I am from Southwestern Ontario. I have not seen yet the results but my daughter just read it to me over the phone during my lunch break.

    ya sure,the first two times i were study from the prep guide and from the mosbys comprehensive review of CRNE ,but in the third time i took many courses as medical surgical ,pharmacology ,community and nursing in ontario course which was very helpful ++++++ the lippincott CRNE prep guide was also an excellent source of data ,+ Mosbys CRNE prep guide which also was a good one + the compendium and the most important thing was my familys' supplication and my faith in GOD that he were with me and helping me in that exam ..i hope that will help and if you need more you can ask ...


    NB. from my experience ,don't rush your self and wait untill you feel that you are ready.

    Hi Sedo,
    What worked for me was consistency, diligence and positive thinking. I said to myself that I have to pass this exam. I studied, worked and took care of my family. I studied the rationale for each question over and over again and went back to my books or online for unfamiliar diseases. I hope this helps. Most of all, pray.

    I passed!!!!! It was helpful looking on here as I was starting to panic that I hadn't heard.
    I am British and had been working on an interim permit since arriving in Jan. I just worked through 2 different books full of past papers plus did the online test.
    I live in BC, the result was in a white A4 envelope.
    Yeah!!!!!
