CRNBC tutor list

As many of you know, Laura Housden and Marlene Burrows are official Canadian Registered Nurses Exam (CRNE) tutors, approved by the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC).

Recently, Laura and Marlene received a letter from the CRNBC stating that it was no longer the Colleges mandate as a regulatory body to maintain a tutor list. This list was originally developed when the CRNBC was the Registered Nurses Association of BC (RNABC) and apparently the tutor list is not consistent with the CRNBCs mandate. As a result the policies have been rescinded and CRNBC will no longer approve tutors or maintain a list of approved tutors.

We understand how disconcerting this must be to many of you as you rely on a professional organization such as the CRNBC to give you contact information of reliable and legitimate tutors who will help prepare you for the CRNE. However, don’t worry Laura and Marlene will continue to offer their exceptional tutoring through their group tutoring service PRIMED Educational Assoc.

We currently are three upcoming dates for CRNE prep sessions:

April 10-11, 2010 Langara College, Vancouver BC

April 24-25, 2020 University of Calgary, Calgary AB

May 8-9, 2010 St. Paul’s Hospital Conference Centre, Vancouver BC

In addition, PRIMED Ed. Assoc. will travel to your community if you are able to organize a large enough group, please contact us at if you are interested in this option.
