To those who did not believe my reply to a post last time... Here are the facts:Filipino RN's who are NCLEX passers are recruited by Mercan agency. Due to reciprocity, they are able to work as LPN's in hospitals like Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert's. They had online courses in the Philippines before leaving and are undergoing a 3-week orientation at Norquest College prior to work as an LPN. NO exam.
