Omar Taladua, RN, Sunnybrook Hospital, IEN from the Philippines, CARE Centre for IENs board member
I graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the Good Samaritan College. In response to the growing need for nurses due to baby boomers entering retirement, my wife and I emigrated to Canada in 2005. When the College of Nurses of Ontario said I was eligible to sit the registration exam, I was eager to do it on the very next date. After taking it I got a letter stating that I missed my goal by one point. I was so depressed that I almost gave up nursing. After joining CARE Centre and taking the Exam Preparation and Review course I had a firm grasp of the material. When I wrote the exam again every question fell into place. I could understand them very clearly. Now I work as an RN at Sunnybrook Hospital!
