    NCLEX in Canada

    I am scheduled for October 1st CRNE and I just received an email from the College (CRNM) that I have an option to withdraw from the exam. Effective October 2, 2014 the College will recognize previous NCLEX RN writes for the purpose of RN registration in Manitoba.

    Clinical Competence Assessment (CCA)

    I was referring to the College of LPNs and RNs in MB (CLPNM & CRNM). I just meant to ask which CCA were you asking about because the difficulty level varies.:) Anyway, most of the people I know were referred to complete courses about Canadian nursing practice. Just try to do a good read about that.

    Clinical Competence Assessment (CCA)

    Both Colleges require applicants to undergo the CCA. Are you applying as LPN or RN?

    Manitoba Nurses

    I know little about Swan River. All I know is it is 6 hours away from Winnipeg. A full time RN position seems tempting, along with all the grants you can get from the Manitoba Gov't for relocating and with working in rural areas. But positions are also available in Winnipeg, you can start part time (and still get full time hours), gain seniority, then if a full time position opens up you'll have better chances of getting it. Goodluck!

    Manitoba Nurses

    I live and work in Winnipeg, MB. Even if you just have a part time position, almost always, you can get full time hours since they cant fill in open positions. I work in Long Term Care. Not sure how it is in acute care though.

    Manitoba Nurses

    According to figures from the Manitoba Nurses Union (2013) shortage still exists. Currently the province still provides funding to recruit and retain nurses. Check out the link below and see how many job openings are there for nurses (and that's just for Winnipeg region) Winnipeg Health Region Careers

    NCLEX or CPNRE

    From what I understand about the recognition of previous NCLEX RN writes (going back 1982), it will be used as an entry to practice examination for purposes of registration as a registered nurse. Since you applied for RPN assessment, I think the exam you need to pass is the CPNRE in order to practice as an RPN in Ontario (unless they would consider the NCLEX RN an equivalent exam for RPN registration, too - something very unlikely since RPNs and RNs have different scopes of practice)

    NCLEX in Canada

    I wonder if CRNM will have the same take on previous NCLEX writes? I recently received eligibility to write the CRNE as a Manitoba candidate and I passed the NCLEX RN in 2008. I have one year to write and pass the required exam. Seriously considering between taking the CRNE this October or wait for a similar announcement (if there is one?)

    Applying for RN/RPh License in Canada

    The Government of Manitoba still offers relocation assistance for nurses who come to the province to work. Lots of job openings for RNs and LPNs here but there are some things to consider though, including the weather. According to CNO's website: Information for applicants who have already passed the NCLEX-RN exam: In September, the College of Nurses of Ontario’s Council will consider whether to accept successful NCLEX-RN exam writes going back to 1982. Before Council makes this decision, you may be eligible to write the CRNE exam in October. If you become eligible to write the CRNE, you have the option of registering to write it in October or to wait until Council has made its decision on the NCLEX.

    Did anyone take the May 2014 CPNRE?

    Results are out here in Winnipeg, MB!

    CRNE Manitoba

    Hello! How's the exam? I will be writing the CRNE this October. I'm from MB, too :)
  12. I suggest you apply for credentials assessment as soon as you get here as it is a very long process. I did apply for registration with both CLPNM and CRNM and it took at almost a year for me to get my LPN license and almost 2 years for my RN registration.

    CLPNE

    Thank you! It just takes 1 day so I guess the one you took is definitely harder. I will send you a PM :)
