    I know that CRNBC don't approve any preparatory courses for the SEC assessment, not sure about CRNNS. I'm pretty much in the same boat as you right now. I'll let you know what happens if I hear anything before you.

    I'm waiting to hear from CRNBC having sent my application and processing fees to them. I'll no doubt need to do the SEC assessment myself.

    Hi everyone,

    I have spent a lot of time researching to try and get an answer for this but to no avail.

    I have started gathering supporting documents together in preparation for submitting a FSW1 application for January when the flood gates are likely to reopen.
    Now that this ECA has been announced I am unsure how this will affect my application. I have a Diploma (Registered Nurse) obtained in the UK.

    I have already applied to the CRNBC to have my credentials assessed. But I will have to then do a SEC assessment and after that will no doubt need to do further study to meet the Requirements to practice in this profession in BC.

    To summarise, my question is does this ECA rule change mean I have to be eligible to sit the CRNE before I am even eligible to apply under the FSW program?
    If this is the case then it could take in excess of a year before being able to apply for PR. This will also affect all nurses and make it impossible for almost any of us to apply for FSW in the near future.

    Surely this can't be right? Can it?

    If there is anyone on this forum who has any insight or wisdom to share on this it would be very beneficial to me and any other Registered Nurses on here wishing to apply for PR.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the replies. I am still in the UK. The reason I'm exploring being registered as an RN and LPN is to cast a bigger net for employment. I thought maybe if I can't find work as an RN then maybe I could find an LPN position.

    Hi everyone,

    Is it possible to be registered in British Columbia as an LPN and RN at the same time.

    hi julian,

    i've just found this website and i'm wondering if you ever achieved what you mentioned in 2008 about opening your own company/ agency?

    i wonder if you or anyone else can point me in the right direction? i have a very large and successful nursing agency in the uk and i'm looking to open a company in the states and mirror my uk model. we currently provide nursing personnel (all grades and specialities) to hospitals, prisons, homes etc. on a last minute basis and for contracts 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

    i was thinking florida, california or new york for the base but open to ideas and suggestions to where's most needed for agency/ temporary staff.

    please may anyone assist me with my query?

    thanking you in advance

    this sounds interesting. i'm looking at starting a nursing agency here in the uk. after several years in the army i would love nothing better than to work for myself as working on an nhs ward until retirement does not appeal to me. i'm trying to conduct market research but keep hiting a brick wall. if you could give me any tips for getting started here in the uk based on your experiences i would be very grateful.

    thanks for any help
