    Pay enquiry

    Hi all Just wanting to know what the average take home pay a month after tax for a year 9 RN after tax please in BC please? And do all nurses get paid monthly??
  2. Aussie/NZ RN here trying figure out which would be the easiest province in Canada to apply for my NNAS. I have heard that BC makes it really hard at times and some have said ON was easier. Is it easy to swap provinces once initial registration comes through?

    Remote nursing in Canada

    Just sent you a PM. Do I need all these certs before working rural or remote?
  4. Hi all I am an ER nurse in australia currently working in a remote part of australia. I am thinking of places that are great for families with young kids in terms of housing, education and affordability. I am not a city person but would not want to be in a completely remote place either. I would love to have access to the beaches and mountains and not be landlocked. I am in the process of getting my certification started with NNAS but trying to decide between BC or Alberta. My husband currently works as a truck driver in the mines and it would have to cater to him as well. I am open to any advice. I have googled the hell out of these 2 places but would love to hear first hand experiences from other international nurses who have moved to either of these places. 😎 Also, how much time are we given to do our NCLEX once we have been approved by NNAS? Thanks guys

    Rural /remote nursing

    Hi uounique Sorry just saw your message now. I am still in Australia in NT. Just wondering if you used an agency to get you to WA or did you do the whole process yourself? I am wanting to work in smaller hospital like those critical access hospitals. Where do you work and what do you specialise in?

    NZ trained RN

    Hi all just wondering if there were any NZ trained nurses who had to do extra theory hours in maternity/paeds for registration in Canada? I trained in CPIT and it seems we did quite a few theory hours in the above but unsure how much was needed. Thanks heaps

    postgraduate course interview

    Hi thanks for the reply No this course is being run by ED in RMH and all staff are required at some stage to pursue it. I was told they had two interviews one for ED employment and if you wanted to do the grad cert you would have to do another interview. Sounds bizarre to me but im guessing they will throwing clinical scenarios my way.

    postgraduate course interview

    Hi has anyone done the Grad Cert in Clinical Practice course via ACU? Seems like a good course but im not too sure about it...it would be great if anyone can give me any info apart from the one on ACU's website. Also i have already done an interview but now they want me to do another interview just for the grad cert...what do they normally ask in those grad cert interviews? Are they pretty similar to the main job interview?
