the last time I was working as an R.N. outside Canada was 2009. Now, I`m planning to have my Nursing education evaluated by NNAS here in Alberta, am I still eligible to challenge the exam without going back to school? Thanks` Rotche !
How are you doing?
Have you applied to NNAS? the first step is getting your English and credentials assessed from them. Then they will write a report. You get to choose who to sent it to: choosing from a list of LPN and RN colleges. It is only at this stage that you will find out if you can challenge exams or if you have to go to school. Even NNAS does not have this information until after your assessment is completed and has been sent to the college of your choosing.
I know that this does not help, the process is not very transparent other than having to start with NNAS, and their first step being providing an English Exam with an adequate score.
I am sorry I can not help more in this matter.
