National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) is a Canadian not-for-profit organization comprised of 21 Nursing regulatory body members of three nursing disciplines: registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs). It is responsible for the initial assessment of internationally educated nurses (IENs) seeking registration and licensure in Canada. NNAS assesses each IEN’s nursing education for comparability to Canadian standards for entry to practice. In addition, NNAS provides an on-line application portal, receives and authenticates registration – supporting documentation, and screens IEN applications to analyze education comparability.
NNAS operates out of our head office at 215 Spadina Avenue, Unit 463, Level 4, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 2C7. The IEN assessment process is carried out by a 3rd party-vendor.
