Is it possible to take CELBAN test … prior to NNAS application

Updated 2021

Hi Kim,

 
Thanks for the welcome message. Iโ€™d like to ask if its possible to take celban test and pass first prior to NNAS application. Iโ€™m not pretty confident to pass the english test and registering for NNAS is very expensive and it has an expiration. Financial resources is very limited as well. Please advise.
 
Thank you,
K

CRNNS: Enhanced IEN Application Process

Updated 2021

Dear Friends,

If you read the post CRNBC: New application process for Internationally Educated Nurses posted on Monday (2014), then you saw an excellent graphic explaining the licensure process to become an RN in BC. There I wrote about how the steps for NNAS are universal, but the steps for each provincial college is different. On Tuesday I wrote about the Criteria for Registration and Licensure for IENs in Nova Scotia. In this post it is clearly evident that the provincial registration processes have been legislated by law: provincial not federal law. Today I will be sharing the Enhanced IEN Application Process from CRNNS in Nova Scotia. The CRNNS, like the CRNBC, has provided a graphic that transparently outlines the process of becoming a nurse in Nova Scotia.

Dear Friend,

Wow! It is amazing what happens when you dig a little further into the information available online! In search for updates on NNAS I found out that the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia is very transparent in that they revealed the criteria for IENs to become registered and licensed in that province, based on their act as directed by their province. I am posting it now, as the opening of NNAS (August 2014) is bound to influence significant changes to the websites of the provincial colleges of nursing.

Dear Friends,

For the past few days I have been scouring the internet and the 22 nursing licensure bodies websites and Facebook pages looking for information for you. Today I found a post by  the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia, (Now BCCNM  as of 2020), posted July 15, 2014. Although some of the information has already been given on this blog, there is additional information provided, and a wonderful graphic on the IEN registration pathway with both NNAS and CRNBC/BCCNM.

Hey Kim,

 
I am still little confused about this NNAS assessment . My doubt is that if we are living in one province so can we submit our papers for evaluation to any other province or to which we belong. As, In Alberta regulatory bodies want the language scores first. Please clear my doubt.
 
Thanks for very useful information. Looking forward to hear back from you.
 
Thanks

SEE: C. Understanding NNAS


Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, August 12 2014, is a much awaited date, for Internationally Educated Nurses. It is the start of a whole new approach to becoming registered in Canada for both LPNs/ RPNs and RNs with the dawning of the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS). Announced in November, 2014, the NNAS is:

a non-profit organization comprised of the 22 member boards of all licensed practical nurse (LPN) (registered practical nurse in Ontario), registered nurse (RN), and registered psychiatric nurse (RPN) regulatory bodies in Canada, with the exception of Quebec and the Territories.

In this way you as IENs apply to one organization regardless of which province you live in, and whether you want to be an LPN/RPN, an RN, or a RPN.
