need advice

  1. I'm just wondering if anyone have the same situation as I have.

    I came here in Canada as a babysitter (coz that is the easiest way to do it). I took the exam last Oct and passed the exam. Unfortunately, I cannot get a license because the CNO requires me to have a permit to work as a nurse or even an open permit, which i will not get it till early next year.

    so anyone has an idea how to work things faster? Coz it is fraustrating to passed the exam and the only requirement that I need is to have a permit to work as a nurse or an open permit?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hate to sound blunt but no.

    You were admitted to the country under one set of papers and can't just change them because you passed an exam. Aren't you required to work for your employer or agency who sponsored you as a nanny for that period?

    I know that. I'm just wondering if I can do anything about it. If there is another way. Coz I'm done with my 2 years this May and i'll apply for my open permit in June. But i'll not get the permit not until early next year.

    As I already wrote.. I'm was just hoping to get my license early this year then next year. Thanks for that reply...
