  10. Hi Hmisabpk,

    I've 3 years diploma in nursing, my queries are

    1) As you explained to someone, diploma holders are not eligible to apply for RN registration,so what are my options???

    2) Actually I was planing to take academic IELTS this month & apply for CRNE exam. If I'm not eligible for CRNE is there some other kind of exam for LPN's.......

    3) what is the protocol for LPN registation.....

    4) What kind of upgradation is needed for LPN to RN.......

    Kindly reply, really looking forward to your reply.....

    Thanks & Regards.
  11. Hi fingers crossed,

    1. I haven't said that diploma holders are not eligible to apply for RN. Diploma holder can apply if she/he meets the CNO requirement for RN registration. Most of the diploma holder are not meeting the first requirement “a minimum of a university baccalaureate degree in nursing” Applicants for registration as an RN must have... see the link for detail: http://www.cno.org/en/become-a-nurse/about-registration/types-of-registration/general-class/
    For you best option is RPN (Registered Practical Nurse)
    2. You can apply for RPN and prepare for Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE)
    3. Follow the steps mentioned (1 to 8 ) at CNO link : http://www.cno.org/en/become-a-nurse/new-applicants1/canada-outside-ontario/
    4. Ontario college nursing bridging programs. These colleges are offering the bridging programs, Visit link for detail.

    hope that helps,

  12. Hi hmisabpk and friends,

    I received a letter from CNO regarding my Nursing Education Evaluation. They have given me 3 options to proceed with the application. Can you please advise which of the 3 choices is the right thing to do? Thank you very much.

    Please see below content of the letter

    We are writing to provide you with information regarding the evaluation of your nursing education.

    Upon initial review of your application, the College of Nurses of Ontario (College) has determined that you have not completed an approved or equivalent nursing program. As a result, you are required to complete an evaluation of your nursing knowledge, skill and judgment and to successfully complete any additional education and/or training identified by the evaluation.
    The evaluation will take place on March **, 2013 , or a subsequent date at:

    The Centre for the Evaluation of Health Professionals Educated Abroad
    80 Bloor Street West
    Toronto, ON M5S 2V1

    The evaluation consists of a short, multiple choice written test and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), during which you will be rotated through simulated, scripted clinical situations using trained actors.
    Upon completion of the evaluation, CEHPEA will forward your results to the College for review. Once the College has reviewed the results, you will be advised in writing about whether you meet the nursing education requirement or if you are required to complete additional education and/or training to meet the nursing education requirement.

    Further information regarding the evaluation can be found on the College's website at www.cno.org/osce.

    You now have one of three options to proceed with your application:

    1. Complete the evaluation by CEHPEA - Check “Attend for CEHPEA
    evaluation” on the enclosed form and then sign and return the form to the College. Once
    we have received your request to attend for the evaluation, you will be contacted by
    CEHPEA regarding the online registration process and the date you will be required to
    attend. An administrative fee of $200.00, payable to CEHPEA, is required at the time of
    completing the online registration, which will reserve your scheduled date and time for
    the evaluation. This administrative fee will be refunded to you upon completion of the
    evaluation. Please note that selecting this option acknowledges your willingness to attend
    the evaluation. To facilitate the process, the College and CEHPEA will exchange
    information relating to the evaluation.

    2. Request a review of your application by the Registration Committee – You
    have the right to request a review of the decision requiring you to complete this
    evaluation. Check “Review by Registration Committee” on the enclosed form and then
    sign and return the form to the College. Once we have received your request, the College
    will advise you of the date upon which your application will be referred to the
    Registration Committee for review.

    3. Withdraw your application – Check “Request for Withdrawal” on the enclosed
    form and then sign and return the form to the College if you are no longer interested in
    pursuing registration with the College. Once we have received request for withdrawal,
    you will receive a letter from the College confirming that your application has been
    closed. The withdrawal of your application would not, in any way, affect your right to
    make a new application. Any new application for registration would be evaluated based
    on the registration requirements in effect at the time of that application.
  13. Hi suwail,

    Option # 1 This is the right option to choice if you want to continue with your registration process
    Option # 2 (in my opinion) It will not make any difference in their judgement, the college has determined that your nursing program is not “an approved or equivalent nursing program” so review committee will be from collage and judgment will be the same as college has given. It would be the waste of time and money.
    Option # 3 Select if you do not wish to continue with your application of registration at CNO.

    Hope that helps,

  15. Hi himsabpk,

    I'm planning to land in Vancouver, so can you guide me for registration at CRNBC.

    Again would like ask your expert opinion on what category to apply(RN or LPN)
