BCCNP launched NCAS in January 2017 as a service for assessing the competencies of nurses and health care aides seeking licensure in BC. Our high-stakes assessment provides a consistent, rigorous and defensible approach to determining the extent to which potential registrants possess the competencies required to enter practice safely. The NCAS assessment comprises three components: a computer-based test that is administered at testing sites all over the world; a simulation-lab assessment; and an oral assessment.
