    Review center for CRNE here in the Philippines

    Good Day, Make sure the reviewers are CRNE passers, and have preferably work in Canada so that they would know and could correlate what they are talking about. When I went here in Canada, I was tempted to review on the said locations,but because of my schedule and pretty high charges,opted not...no regrets.it is up to you,if you think it would help you pass the exam. Nice to know that PNA in the Province of Manitoba is active,they conduct free outlined reviews of subjects for Internationally Educated Nurses a month or so priorto exam, and you can attend it in person or by telehealth(broadcast live from your hospital/facilty,..just seat and listen). Goodluck;)

    pencil grade for RN Exam

    The recommended pencil to be use is HB2,i think. Check at the back of your CRNEprep guide,(sample answer sheet), I believe it is stated there.In the registration letter that they provided, it states they will provide us pencils. I assume you are all set for the exam and worried about this things.

    CRNE 7th october

    Goodluck to all th examinees this coming Wednesday. We have waited for this, Godbless all Nurses:yeah:
  16. When the Canadian employers when to our hometown, I would like to believe I was chosen by my experience,credentials,personality and even luck.I consider my self as an above average,compassionate and competent nurse,well in my humble opinion.hehe. I think regardless of nationality people can claim they are the best nurses,proving it is another thing.We are all nurses, we took our oath to serve and give the best nursing care possible,the problem is sometimes we make a big issue of our trainings.The best nurses are those who regardless of setting can be efficient and adjust through any changes and challenges.The best measurement will be patient satisfaction. I think Canadian nurses are undervalued,IMO as compared to Americans.primarily because our( my country)nursing education and books are mostly/entirely base on american setting and we were made to believe that ameirica is the ultimate destination for nurses hehe!Some of the Canadian nurses that I've talked to ,told me that they are understaffed because their newly gradiuate nurses and some well experienced nurses are migrating to America.well everybody wants to go toAmerica I guess. My previous working experience is quite different from Canada, although the principles remains the same.I may be having a hard time but it is not impossible to accomplish.3 months from now my views may be different.The same thing can be said that Canadian nurses may have a hard time adjusting if they will work in our setting, initially. My Caucassian client told me "oh your one of the new ________ nurses,you are known to be caring...."did not get the whole statement, because you know why?..,I was busy analyzing on how to use a gadget to llift and transfer her up in the commode,infact she wasthe one who became my mentor and taught me how to use it, probably her views may now be different after our initial encounter,hehe. Well I do not see any displeasure of the canadian nurses that I work with so far, infact I think they are glad that we are here for support. They can even take their breaks now, get better shift and probably have more time unwinding.
