Re: UK PSYCHIATRIC NURSE. . I THINK I AM NEARLY THERE!!

Could you apply for a provincial nominee programme? It isn’t solely dependent on points then. Other factors, such as profession are taken into account. I don’t know if Alberta has a healthcare...

Re: Uk counsellor moving private practice to Vancouver

No, not yet. We first started looking in to this just before the pandemic. Given that we both work in the NHS, it had to take a back seat for a while. We’re just now starting to get things moving...

Re: Uk counsellor moving private practice to Vancouver

The act of psychotherapy is not regulated in BC, just as it isn’t it in the UK. So you can practice as a counsellor without any registration. Of course, a lot of counsellors voluntarily sign up with...

Re: Conflicted

I did wonder if the Ok was like that. Given it’s known for retirees, those in their older years tend to become more conservative with age, right? I guess I’m thinking more in terms of policy. The new...

Re: Conflicted

Thats surprising. Although, forming an impression from so far away is difficult and not an exact science 😂

I’ve been taking a look at a few of the smaller towns/cities in the Okanagan, such as...

Re: Daughter is a UK nurse is it best to sponsor her

Ah, yes, I’d forgotten about the 2 years experience. I guess it’s a long-term option if EE doesn’t work out. As you said above, if she could come on and give her CRS score, it may be easier to...

Have a look at the BC PNP Healthcare programme. It’s specifically for healthcare workers, including nurses.

Re: Conflicted

Thanks for this.

I was aware of most of what was in there, thanks to a podcast I’ve been listening to, I did link to it on another thread. It follows a Canadian couple of who visit each...

Re: Conflicted

Yeah, I’m aware that Alberta is like that and it does concern me. One of the reasons we decided on Canada, and BC in particular, is that it appears to be inclusive, multicultural, left-leaning but as...

Re: Conflicted

I disagree. People have their reasons and I don’t think there are right/wrong reasons. The weather in and of itself is not the reason we want to move, but the opportunity that it presents us. It’ll...

Re: Conflicted

Yes, I was looking at Calgary. The houses we could get there (not sure of area) are so much more substantial than we could get in BC. Not sure re visa programmes though.

It’s likely we’ll not be...

Re: Conflicted

No, we haven’t made any applications yet. I’m a tight Northerner, so I don’t want to spend a penny unless I know it’s certain. We know what visa programme we’ll apply for (BC PNP Healthcare) and what...

Conflicted

My family and I made the decision to move away from the UK in the summer of 2020. We’d had 2 days of beautiful sunshine, followed by a few weeks of patchy rain. That was our ‘summer’. We wanted...

Re: UK nurse moving to Canada

I stand corrected. And this makes sense, given that the western provinces see RMN’s as distinct nurses, they would require their own training to meet the competencies of the nursing board.

From my...

Re: UK nurse moving to Canada

Sorry, only just seen this.

We still haven’t made an application. Things just keep getting in the way. We will, one day. And hearing your journey helps us to stay motivated to do it, so thank you.

Very exciting but so many questions!

Do you know what the consolidated clinical practice will involve? And what will those limitations be? Can you do the consolidated clinical whilst working under...

Re: Working in both Canada and the UK

I believe the UK and Canada have a double taxation agreement, meaning that if you paid income tax in one country, you won't have to pay it in the other if/when you move the money from one country to...

Re: UK nurse moving to Canada

That’s brilliant news, Kayceeken!

From my reading, comparable is good in the sense that they won’t be asking you to re-do your entire degree but you will still be required to complete the NCAS CBA...
