The CBA includes reviewing cases that go through the step-by-step process of clinical thinking and decision-making. The possibilities are developed to unfold over a single work shift, a couple of days or weeks. There is a mix of multiple-choice and multiple-select questions.
Multiple-choice questions have four options, with only one correct answer.
Multiple-select questions have six answer options, three are correct. The multiple-select questions include a prompt to select the three best actions for a health care professional to take in the situation that the scenario describes.
Read the questions carefully, as answers can't be changed.
There are 15 minutes to complete a brief tutorial before starting the Computer Based Assessment (CBA). This time is NOT included in the actual assessment time and is used to review Prometric's computer testing environment.
The CBA is administered by Prometric at their testing centres across Canada and worldwide.
The Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) CBA is available via remote proctoring. This option is available when self-scheduling the CBA through the Prometric website.
