The Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) is part of the BC College of Nurses and Midwives. BCCNM is empowered under the Health Professions Act to regulate the practice of all licensed practical nurses, nurse practitioners, registered midwives, registered nurses, and registered psychiatric nurses in British Columbia. Regulation helps to protect the public by ensuring that professional care or service received by the public is competent, ethical, and meets the standards that society views as acceptable. NCAS operates as a unique and independent unit within BCCNM.
BCCNM launched NCAS in January 2017 to assess the competencies of professionals seeking to enter nursing practice in BC and other parts of Canada. NCAS is a testing service that regulators rely upon to determine if someone is safe to enter practice. Our high-stakes assessment is comprised of a computer-based test that is administered at testing sites all over the world, as well as a simulation-lab and oral assessment that are delivered in Vancouver and Halifax. The NCAS assessment represents a consistent, rigorous, and defensible approach for determining the extent to which individuals possess the competencies required to enter practice safely.
