New Assessment Service Evaluates Competence of Internationally Educated Health Practitioners
January 4, 2017 marks the launch of the Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS), a new assessment service for internationally educated health practitioners (IEPs), including RPNs, applying to register in British Columbia. NCAS provides competence-based assessments that evaluate the skills of an IEP applicant against competencies required for entry-level practice in the province. If gaps are identified, it will assist in determining what education is required to transition to practice in B.C. Further information can be found here.
