Help​​ us field test new assessments

The Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) ​provides a competency assessment service for internationally educated nurses and healthcare assistants seeking to license in British Columbia or Maritime Canada. NCAS is currently ​looking for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) to test its new assessments. Field testing is part of NCAS's quality assurance program.


Eligible LPNs and RNs may be:

  • experienced,
  • recent graduates, or
  • students (in their last term)

What's involved

The assessment testing will take place at Langara College's nursing simulation lab on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021. Each participant will be scheduled for a 3-hour testing window between 2:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Participants will complete a simulation-based assessment consisting of 4–5 clinical scenarios (approx. 30 minutes each). Results are anonymous and will never be shared with your employer, colleagues, or teachers.

Each participant will receive a $50 gift card in exchange for their time.
