Hi i am seeking advice. Here is my circumstances: RN overseas. NNAS report shows i am comparable on all grounds. Vancouver NCASBC CBA computer exam and SLA Simulation exam completed, but the point is that i ran out of time, so could not demonstrate skills and got referred for further education. Argh!

I have now been given a list of nursing classes as transitional coursework to complete and to then reapply. The colleges have per-requisites before i can enrol, and they have enrolment wait-lists, so it would take approximately two-three years before i get provisional registration. It is like starting nursing school all over again.

So what are my options from here? Can i take my NNAS report to another province of canada? Where is the easiest and cheapest? Can i practice in other provinces once registered? I just wasted $4900 dollars on this process. I am so disheartened. Any advice on next-steps would be appreciated. Cheers.

You could try another province but they may still require you to go through the same process as the first. Generally once registered in one province you can register in another.

Thank you. Could i ask, if i take my positive NNAS report to another province, which province would hold the best chance of success? I applied in BC only because i live here.

BC may still require you to meet requirements even if you go to another province. There is no guarantee that you will not have to meet requirements for other provinces. I have no idea what other province to go for
