Welcome to the Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS)

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​.  ​​

Although assessments may be taken in any order, we recommend that you take the CBA first. 


Our Partners​​​

NCAS was born of the collaborative efforts of the BC Care Aide and Community Health Worker Registry, the BC College of Nursing Professionals, as well as the Government of BC's Ministry of Health. BCCNP is currently acting as the operator of NCAS. 

The Ministry of Health provided​ foundational support during the pilot phase of NCAS, and ​continues to fund NCAS as it transitions towards full operations and sustainability.
