This handbook lists each of the steps you will need to take in order to complete your NNAS application. Please be sure to read all of the instructions in this handbook carefully before you submit your NNAS application, and before any documents or forms are sent to NNAS.
You are only eligible to apply for an NNAS application if you:
- Graduated from a college or university nursing program outside of Canada
- Have never worked as a nurse in Canada before
- Want to work as a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) in Canada
You may use your online NNAS account to print your required forms, check the status of your application, view your emails, see your language test results, and update your contact information.
Note: If you have already worked as a nurse in Canada, you do not need to set up an online NNAS account. You may apply directly to the regulatory body of your choice.
