How the new regulations on mobility across Canada affect IEN.

  1. Hi, I've tried browsing the forum and the colleges of nursing websites, but I'm still unclear about this:

    -If an IEN establishes full registration in one province, let's say Ontario and practices there for a few years and then moves to BC or Alberta; does the IEN needs to go through the whole process of assessment or just have her licensing through endorsement???

    -I know that CRNE is suppossed to be passed just once in a lifetime ; however, are the IEN's documents transferred from one regulatory body to another or need to be requested again from the country of origin???

    -Is it moving from a province to another as lenghty as the original registration???

    Sorry if it seems too long, I just couldn't find the info, and I'm very curious

    I should image you will still have to meet requirements even when moving from one province to another ie transcripts etc.

    This is on the Nova Scotia college website re have a license already in another province http://www.crnns.ca/default.asp?id=1...29&search=1173

    Thanks Silver, I've forgotten the NS College website. I wonder why no one comes with the idea of giving a "hard license" like that of NY state in Canada; it may save a few trees by not doing the same paperwork two or three times.

    Something like that is actually in the works. The last paragraph on page 2 discusses it: http://www.cna-aiic.ca/CNA/documents...al_Trade_e.pdf Of course, any kind of broad-based regulatory change will take time to pull together because of the large number of stakeholders.

    Thanks. I think it`s a very good idea. If a person has meet the standards in one province and has practiced safely in Canada, why to duplicate time consuming paperwork.
