​​Complete an educational credential review​​

Apply to have your education documents evaluated

You will need to have your educational credentials reviewed. NCAS authorizes all the agencies listed in the chart below to conduct a credential evaluation. This review confirms that you graduated from an accredited nursing education program and verifies other educational items.​

To complete your education credential assessment, go to one of the agency websites and:

a. Fill out their online application form

b. Select NCAS as the assessment report recipient

c. Follow the prompts to complete the application process

You might already have completed a credential review through your IRCC (Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada) application. This review probably does not contain all the information we need. Please contact the credential agency you submitted your IRCC application with and complete the process to upgrade your report. There will be a fee associated with upgrading your report. Upgrading fees are different for each agency.

When you complete your educational credential assessment (ECA) application or upgrade, the credential agency will contact NCAS and send your report directly to us. NCAS will not accept these reports unless they are sent directly to us fro​m the credential agency.​

Here are the five approved credential agencies:​​
