Hi so im licensed in manitoba and so doing travel nursing requires you to be registered in EACH province that they cover (i.e. Alberta, BC, Yukon, NB, etc) meaning you pay YEARLY registration fee? Right? Then you would be paying 3000cad for registering alone?

So you are doing travel nursing in US already? How is it going? How were you able to get there? Im doing my research.
I am an RN in manitoba. I started with a 31/hr rate and now im up to 33 after 2 1/2 yrs and honestly ive never seen any US state having higher start rates. I was an IEN and had to do 1 yr of bridging course. I was a BN back home but its only considered here as equivalent to RN program (that was abolished a year ago)
Okay so my friend has a gf in australia and he was applying since last yr i think but never heard from them. Im not sure if he applied directly in a hosp i gotta ask him
travel nurse seems legit compared to the other canadian travel nurse sites i googled.
and one more thing ive heard here that there's this filipino guy that moved here in canada but works in saudi arabia and he makes 10000 USD a month. Which is a lot so he's just like going back and forth. Did 3 months there and came back in winnipeg bought a home. Im still in the process of confirming this. Apparently if you are a US or canadian RN saudi arabia is willing to pay you more
as for canadian travel nsg, im still doung research cause most of the topics here tackle US travel nsg.
Hi does anyone here have done/is doing travel nursing across canada only? If so could you give me an overview how it works? Like with the pay scale,benefits, assignments, seniority (?) vacation planning
i did request for an application package from travelnurse.ca but reading through their website is sort of difficult (im guessing due to info overload) i find it easier to comprehend infos if theyre from people posting on forums
thanks! Btw im a canadian RN in manitoba with 2 1/2 yrs experience in mental health (adult/geria) + geriatric rehabilitation

Hi i like this thread as it has infor regarding travel nursing and doing the nclex!
stephaniern12 how is it going with your travel nursing? We would love to hear what happened and how are you doing
to everyone: im a canadian rn but i have no idea where to start in obtaining the nclex. So there are states that are 'easier' to apply in/to get your license? Could somebody give me a breakdown via here or PM with the visa, ssn stuff? Iam really confused thanks
