​​​​​​British Columbia

In British Columbia, NCAS provides a competency assessment for four healthcare professions. We assess individuals seeking to practice in the province as:​

  • Health care assistants (HCA)
  • Licensed practical nurses (LPN)
  • Registered nurses (RN)
  • Registered psychiatric nurses (RPN)

Triple-track​ RN/LPN/HCA: three professions, one assessment

The triple-track assessment is an innovative assessment designed to evaluate your competency for three nursing professions - RN, LPN and HCA - all at once. The triple-track assessment aims to get you into the healthcare workforce as quickly as possible, while saving you time and money in the long run.

Getting Referred

To complete an NCAS assessment, you must be referred to us by the appropriate referring organization for your chosen profession. NCAS cannot accept referrals from candidates themselves. Each referring organization has unique requirements you must fulfill to ensure your eligibility for a competency assessment. 


What happens after NCAS receives my referral?

​​​Once we have received a referral directly from your referring organization, you will receive an email from NCAS to get your assessment started.
