They said that i can study under that program provided that i would sign a waiver...which states that i would still take the SEC assessment after i've finished the said program. That was a year ago and I don't have any updates right now.

Thanks for the info!

I would suggest applying to the province first and then go from there.

thanks for the rapid reply. Do you mean apply for assessment of my credentials first to be able to sit for CRNE before applying for immigrant visa? My concern is, how long will be the eligibility then. thanks again....

There are no fast or simple answers to your questions. Every person and every situation are different. Some get all their requirements met and out of the way in a few months and others take a year or more.

These two websites will give accurate information on the process as it exists in Alberta. Read the information found there and follow the links found there so that you get a clearer picture of how it all works. But realize that NO person posting here at allnurses.com will have all or even most of the answers you seek.

@ATZRN it is better to apply for an assessment first and wait for the results, They will contact you if they needed additional requirements or if they would like you take an SEC (depends on the province and individual assessment of the board on your transcripts and experience).

If you are eligible to sit for CRNE it will bolster your credential and it's easier (but not a guarantee) to find an employer.

Immigrant visa is point basis, it includes age, work experience, relatives in canada, language skill (english and French) job offer from canada, educational attaintment etc..

And if you did not met the points thats time and money wasted, I strongly suggest to bolster first your qualifications inorder to be an immigrant..

You could checke the CIC website for accurate information:

www.cic.gc.caThere is also a provincial nominee program in Canada - faster route for an immigrant(if profession is in the shortage list for the year - it includes nursing) But they will not process it unless you have an employer in Canada

Province of Alberta..I don't know why. The letter from the embassy said that they are not convinced that I'm gonna leave Canada after the said exam. It was heartbreaking..

I already applied for a tourist VISA..I got denied..:cry:

Do you have a relative in Alberta like brother or sister? And were you working in Philippines when you were applying for the visa?how can one prove that you're going back after the exam?

yes, i have relatives in canada (grandmother, uncle, aunties and cousins)...i was not working when i applied, reviewed for ielts and applied soon as i passed the said exam. i don't know about their policies, maybe they need proof of assets like bank accounts, properties, etc. But, I heard a lot of people got denied eventhough they have assets to show. What's worse is that you can't even talk face-to-face with a consul to ask for explanation. They'll just send back your papers and the letter, which somewhat looks like a checklist on why they're denying your application (signed without the printed name of the officer).

I also received an invitation for SEC and my biggest prob right now is my visa application. I'm planning to apply for a Temp. res visa (tourist) but I don't have any bank accounts, properties or employment contract to support my application. I'm having second thoughts on passing my application because I'm afraid to be refused. though, I have a relative from BC who can send me an invitation as supporting paper, I still doubt if this will be sufficient. Can anyone give some advice on what i should do to convince the consul. thanks!:smilecoffeecup:
