I think you need to clarify with the CRPNBC as to whether you are qualified to work as an RPN (registered psychiatric nurse). Sounds strange to be told you qualify to work as an RPN when you seem to have experience as an RN

. Good luck

you missed the part where the op referred to cno... the college of nurses of ontario in ontario, an rpn is a registered practical nurse, rather than the more commonly accepted registered psychiatric nurse. so pavi's questions are actually quite appropriate. s/he needs to know if s/he'll make enough to live on, have benefits and so on. i can't help with that information, though, because it's been a lifetime since i lived in ontario.
