Also what is the retirement age for RNs in Canada?

Can anyone help answer please?

Thanks

Edith
NCLEX exam has nothing to do with English fluency but everything to do with qualifying as a nurse in Canada and being able to work as a RN. Only exception to sitting the exam is if you passed the exam previously if planning on working in the US or passed the CRNE years ago

Hey guys, I'm planning on applying from the UK however I have just noticed this from the NMC website
"We don't issue paper certificates or complete forms given to us by other authorities."
It's starting to stress me out, can anyone shed any light on what I am meant to do now?
thanks

Have you completed the other Provincial / Federal registrations to be able to work as a nurse in Canada? Which Province are you hoping to move to?
Lots of info on how to do this in this thread: https://britishexpats.com/forum/cana...canada-905062/

I am planning on applying via NNAS - but they want everything in hard copy mailed to them - NMC doesn't do that unfortunately

The Placement happen after you finish certain modules and a lab experience (generally few days). My wife took an online course. The difficulties for RN from UK is that when you do an exam, you have to answer right or wrong for each question, here works on Critical Thinking, so it could be tricky if you are not use to that.
My wife will attend the lab in 2 weeks time and then will receive the placement for about 2 months. After that she will have a provisional licence until Nclex will be done. For us has not been easy for many reasons but we managed to get there. Hard yes, not impossible.
