NCAS provides a three-part competency assessment for internationally-educated health practitioners (IEPs) — including health care assistants, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, and psychiatric nurses — who hope to practice in British Columbia. We also assess health care professionals returning to practice, and health care assistants trained in other jurisdictions.
Please note: To be eligible, you must be referred to NCAS by an appropriate regulatory organization or registry.
Once you complete all three assessments, we will send you and the regulatory organization or registry you choose a report on the results. The results will be available within 60 days. Those results highlight competency strengths and gaps. The regulators and registry use these results, along with other information they have obtained from you, to help them make their registration decisions. It is important to note that NCAS does not make registration decisions.
