The IENCAP (IEN Competency Assessment Program) is a standardized examination designed to test the knowledge, skills and communication abilities of an Internationally Educated Registered Nurse.
Regulations in Nursing
Applicants who are able to show they have successfully written NCLEX will be exempt from writing the CRNE having met the College of Nurses of Ontario “registration examination” requirement.
The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) has joined 22 nursing regulatory bodies across Canada in launching the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS). All IEN applicants to the CNO must submit their applications and pay their initial assessment fees to NNAS within a secure online environment.
CARE Centre has posted a new FAQ to provide more information on the recent changes made by the College of Nurses of Ontario that will directly affect your process of registration as an RN or RPN. You should contact your CARE Centre case manager to discuss your specific circumstances, and plan your next steps.
