    I'm not a citizen or a PR. Ive never held any type of Canadian visa. I studied in the Philippines.

    If you go to the CRNBC and NNAS websites, there is nothing there that states Canadian citizenship or PR status as a requirement for registration.
    Some provinces will not issue a license until proof of right to live and work in Canada is provided and that will be either PR or work permit. Having a quick browse through a couple of provincial colleges not all state this requirement

    Wow, so I guess BC does it a lot different then. You didn't have to come here to do a Competency Assessment?

    No I didnt have to do it. I started my application in 2008 and I kept delaying it because back then CRNBC required applicants to sit the CRNE and they did not accept NCLEX-RN. I live in New Zealand so and the CRNE was only offered in North America back then. CRNBC also required all applications to provide employment reference from a B.C. healthcare facility proving that you've worked there for 250 hours as a provisional registrant. CRNBC changed their tune from 2013 onwards. They stopped requiring 250 hours of work experience in BC as an RN provisional registrant and they started accepting NCLEX in lieu of CRNE.
