NCLEX Passers Alberta Canada

>> Thursday, July 9, 2015

The College of Registered Nurses of Alberta - CARNA recognizes NCLEX passers from 1982 till present.

Applicants with NCLEX may no longer have to take the Board Exam in Alberta, but to find out they need to have their credentials assessed first.

And I quote from the CRNA Website: "CARNA recognizes past NCLEX-RN results Posted September 29, 2014 On September 26, 2014 CARNA Provincial Council passed the motion to retroactively recognize all passing NCLEX-RN results back to 1982. Effective immediately, if you passed the NCLEX between 1982 and present day, you will be considered to have met CARNA’s exam requirement for registration. You will not be required to take the NCLEX again. 

Update In response to the feedback we have received, we encourage interested international applicants to refer to all the registration requirements for IENs. 

Passing the registration exam is only one requirement and this alone does not enable you to practice in Alberta. If you have not applied to CARNA already and want to practice in Alberta, you need to first apply through NNAS. If you have an open file with CARNA, or have previously applied, please send an email with your specific information or questions to We appreciate your patience in receiving a response during this high volume time." 

How does this affect you the applicant? 

If you have a valid NCLEX you can have your credentials assessed in the National Nursing Assessment Service NNAS. 

And if you are fortunate to pass the assessment, you will no longer have to take the CARNA exam to practice in Alberta. Having this credential means you will be able to apply for a Nursing Job in Alberta Canada, and if you get an employer, you will have very high points to be considered to receive an Invitation to Apply - ITA for a Permanent Residents Visa in Canada.

Next year 2015 Canada plans to accept between 260,000 and 285,000 new permanent residents in its Immigration programs.

economic immigrants (181,300)
family class (68,000)
humanitarian and compassionate cases (29,800)

What does this mean for you?

If you are an applicant for Humanitarian and compassionate programs the year 2015 might be the year you will finally become a permanent resident in Canada.

If you are a Canadian Permanent Resident or a Canadian citizen who wants to bring your children, spouse, Parents or Grandparents to Canada you need to make sure that you qualify to become a sponsor before sending in your application.  But also need to have your family member prepare their application requirement ahead of time.  Since, the application to sponsor your family and their Permanent Residents Visa is processed at the same time.

If you are one of those applicants who is waiting for a program to apply to, so that you can become a permanent resident, the new application management system of Canada which will be launched on January 2015, the "Express Entry", may very well be the best program for you.

Interested applicants will be assessed in the programs selection criteria.  If you qualify you will be allowed to post an online profile in Canadian Governments Job Bank, a website that is monitored and controlled by the Canadian Government.

You will then be assessed and ranked against other applicants, if you are ranked as one of the applicants who attained the highest scores, you will be given and invitation to apply to become a permanent Resident.

For those who does not have enough points, the Canadian Government will still consider giving you an invitation to apply if:

An employer in Canada gives you a Job Offer (must be certified and verifiable)

If you get a Nomination from one of Canada's provinces who is a participant in the Express Entry

As Canada aims to select the best and the brightest across the globe, the key to your application will be your capability to provide proper, correct, consistent and complete documentation that clearly illustrates that you are qualified for the program.

To be able to do this requires more than just looking at the programs checklist and providing the documents listed.

Moreover, you need to be more proactive. The Canadian Government will only give you 2 months to submit your requirements once you are given the invitation to apply for the program. If you do not prepare your requirements in Advance, you might ran out of time.

If you have made an application in the past you would know that most of the documents might take more than three months to secure.

Moreover, the Canadian government is known to set a timeline and a Cap in their programs to control the influx of applications they will receive.

If you wait too long to get started, it is highly likely that you will not be able to apply when the quota or Cap gets filled out or the program closes.

Canada has placed some control measures to ensure that the processing of the applications for the program will be processed quickly and efficiently.  Those who acts now and makes sure that they take can take advantage of this programs will be rewarded with a much quicker processing speed.
