Effective February 9, 2023, NNAS will release Advisory Reports without requiring a curricular assessment to applicants who have written and passed the National Council Licensure Examination [for] Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) on or after April 1, 2013 and who will be applying for licensure or registration as a RN at CNO, NSCN and BCCNM. This change is part of our efforts to streamline our processes for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs).
Already written and passed NCLEX-RN on or after April 1, 2013?
Applicants who have written and passed NCLEX-RN on or after April 1, 2013, can update their application with their NCLEX-RN information by going into the Examination Section (Part C) of their NNAS Application Form. A new section has been added where applicants can confirm they have written and passed NCLEX-RN on or after April 1, 2013. Applicants will also be asked to include their NCLEX-RN ID number. This will allow NNAS to verify results and include this information on the applicant’s Advisory Report. For applicants who do not know their NCLEX-RN ID number, please follow the instructions in the NNAS portal.
Have not written and passed NCLEX-RN on or after April 1, 2013?
Applicants who have not written and passed NCLEX-RN on or after April 1, 2013,
do not need to do anything. Those applications will continue in the process and the applicant’s nursing education curriculum will be assessed.
NNAS is the single point of entry for all IENs interested in becoming licensed or registered as a nurse in Canada, and your first stop in the application process. We are here to help you with a streamlined process to submit your documents and ensure a smooth review.
Applicants with questions about this change should contact Applicant Support at email@example.com or by calling 1-855-977-1898, Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET.
