Internationally Educated Applicants

All internationally educated applicants who want to register with CRPNBC must first apply directly through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), a national online application service developed by nursing regulatory bodies across Canada.

NNAS is the mandatory first step for any internationally educated nurse (IEN) applicant who:

  • Is a graduate of a psychiatric nursing education program outside of Canada; and
  • Is not currently registered to practice as an RPN anywhere within Canada
