No more RN vaccancy in Alberta???

  1. Hello ladies!!

    I have done BScN in 2007 and working as a RN in surgical area. em just wondering that is it true that in Alberta, job freezing is going on?? I m an IEN, applied in CARNA since feb 2009 and waiting for my eligibility letter. keeping my fingers crossed but really worrying at the same time.

    Can anyone help me to find an employer/recruiter. I m willing to work in Calgary or Edmonton.
    My next query is that, em single right now but will be marrying at the end of this year. I have heard that usually spouse can also get visa on the basis of work permit. ???

    will be waiting for you views

    Yes there has been some big changes going on in Alberta and this thread will give a bit more information Alberta Health Services

    Depending on route and also if job in shortage occupation will depend on whether spouse will get a open work permit. For most nurses do meet that criteria. Would suggest if possible you get employer to go the PNP route as you will get PR straight away otherwise if going the TWP route you need to sort PR once you can. You may also want to think about another province
