Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Partnering with People
To write the RPNCE for the first time, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Internationally Educated Psychiatrics Nurses
Once the RPNAS notifies you that you are eligible to write the examination, you must write the exam within two (2) years. If you do not write the exam within the first year of that two-year period, you will have to resubmit a Resume, Criminal Record Check, Confirmation of Registration and Employment References.
Important: After two (2) years have passed, you must restart the application process from the beginning, directly through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS)
Effective August 12, 2014, all internationally educated nurses who want to register with the RPNAS must first apply directly through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), a national online application service developed by the nursing regulatory bodies across Canada
