Licensure Exams

Language Assessment

NCLEX

The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States, Canada, and Australia since 1982, 2015, and 2020 espectively.

This means all applicants seeking registration to become RNs in Canada must write and pass the NCLEX-RN.

RExPN

Regulatory Exam- Practical Nurse (REx-PN) is a new Canadian Practical Nurse exam currently developed for College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) and British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) and is in effect since January 2022.

This exam replaces CPNRE for these two regulatory bodies only.

CPNRE

Before you can become a registered practical nurse (RPN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN), you must successfully complete the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE).

OSCE

An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is an assessment that allows applicants to demonstrate their nursing knowledge, skill, and judgment in a simulated clinical setting.

Language Assessment

CELBAN

The Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment (CELBAN) for Nurses is an assessment tool designed to assess the English language proficiency of internationally educated nurses (IENs) who are applying for licensure in the nursing profession in Canada.

IELTS

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test developed by the world’s leading experts in language assessment on four key English language skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

  • First, if you have graduated from a nursing college within Canada. After completion of diploma or degree in nursing you will be writing respective licensing exams such as CPNRE, RExPN or NCLEX-RN.

Β 

  • As an Internationally Educated Nurse (IEN). You must apply for an assessment first and then based on the outcome you will obtain eligibility to write CPNRE/RExPN or NCLEX-RN.

The short answer is no. Although meeting English language proficiency is one of the must have requirements from all the regulatory bodies in Canada except Quebec. However, many regulatory bodies in Canada and US will allow either to write your license exam without the English Language Proficiency test or will provide an opportunity to get it waived off. Again, it depends on which regulatory body you will be applying to.

The short answer is no. Many regulatory bodies in Canada and US will allow either to write your license exam without the work experience from back home or will provide an opportunity to fulfill this requirement at a later stage. Again, it depends on which regulatory body you will be applying to.

As of August 2023, there are a few different pathways to obtain eligibility to write a nursing license exam in Canada.


Not too long ago NNAS used to be the only assessment agency/pathway to start your application with Canadian regulatory bodies (RBs) except Quebec and Northwest Territories. However, due to extreme shortage of nurses many regulatory bodies have adopted much simpler and quicker processes. You still may be required to apply through NNAS, but many regulatory bodies have started taking direct applications as well such as British Columbia, Alberta, and Nova Scotia.

As an internationally educated nurse (IEN), you must set up an account with NNAS before your application will be considered by any Canadian nursing regulatory body if:

  • You received your post-secondary nursing education outside of Canada.
  • You have never registered to work as a nurse in Canada.
  • You want to work as a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or registered psychiatric nurse (RPN) in Canada.

Under this service, applicants can apply for licensing as an RN or LPN at the same time and at a single price. NNAS Advisory Reports are released within 5 business days of all documents being received. No curricular assessment is required. You are eligible to apply to NNAS’s Expedited Service if you have:

  • Β Completed a post-secondary nursing education program (university or college) outside of Canada.
  • Have been licensed as a nurse outside of Canada.
  • Will be applying with any of the following nursing regulatory bodies:
    • College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM)
    • College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS)
    • College of Registered Nurses and Midwives of Prince Edward Island (CRNMPEI)
    • Nurses Association of New Brunswick (NANB)
    • Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses
    • College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Newfoundland & Labrador
    • Existing NNAS applicants who meet the above criteria will be automatically transferred to the Expedited Service.

Yes, International applicants will have choices and will no longer need a lengthy and costly credential assessment (NNAS) before they can write the NCLEX-RN.
Applicants can now meet the competence requirement using a pass on the NCLEX-RN if they:

  • Have registration in any global jurisdiction and have already passed the NCLEX-RN.
  • Have registration in one of nine international jurisdictions and request to write the NCLEX-RN with the CRNA. The nursing jurisdictions are the Philippines, India, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Nigeria, Jamaica, New Zealand, and Ireland.
  • Verify they have an equivalent education from any jurisdiction and request to write the NCLEX-RN with the CRNA.

Yes. There are two licensure pathways available:

  • The expedited pathway: You are an international nurse who is registered and holds a current license that entitles you to practice as an RN in the Philippines, India, Nigeria, Australia, US, UK, or New Zealand
  • The non-expedited pathway: You are an international nurse who does not hold a current license to practice as an RN in Canada or the seven designated countries.

For AB, NS and BC you can directly proceed to obtain licensure after passing NCLEX from US or AUS.


For CNO and other regulatory bodies, if you have already passed NCLEX-RN from outside Canada then they will accept it as well at the end of the NNAS process. That means you would not be required to write NCLEX-RN for CNO anymore.


** Please check with CNO directly for any further changes in this regard. The information provided here is for reference only and may not be up-to-date.

Yes. You will still be required to fill in an endorsement application with the regulatory body where you want to transfer the license.
