    Hi I have not heard of this group, be careful make sure it is not NCLEX based as many are. I did the CRNE yesterday and it was tough, very community orientated as that is the way health care is going in Canada. So study Canadian books as these are what the CRNE questions are based on. I did the...

    Hi Most things in Ontario are regulated, so not a lot of options in medical, unless you can get a job as a receptionist in a medical clinic/hospital. I was just lucky I got the job in retail, most places want experience. Try volunteering for Red Cross or St John Ambulance as first responder. It...

    Hi Congratulations, may I ask when you applied and how long the process took, this would really help me. My understanding is that the assessment is good for 1 year, ie you need to sit the CRNE within 1 year of your eligibility to sit exam. olga
