Hello there Sparksman

I hope you don't mind a message from a newbie :) I saw your post and it gave me a tiny bit of hope. I'm currently an outpatients nurse in the Uk and I've already been granted a PR visa for Canada , I will need to move out to Vancouver at the end of this year . I have to say I'm getting rather scared about it..I've been reading about these SEC assessments internationally trained nurses need to undertake...Did you have to do one for BC too? I'm only Adult trained in the uk and have no experience in all the other nursing area's... Are the SEC's really difficult and what if you fail them? :( Could you please give me any advice? I'd really appreciate it... I'm thinking of getting some Canadian nursing books and begin brushing up on things ...

Congratulations to you that you've been offered a job out in Vancouver, sounds like you have put in a lot of hard work yourself to get there too and that its paid off...so this does give me a bit of hope too...at my age of 30..Im prolly gonna need all the luck I can get :)

Thankyou

Tina.
