Clinical Competence Assessment

We provide clinical competence assessments (CCA) for applicants in partnership with the University of Manitoba College of Nursing. If you were referred for a CCA, you will receive an email that explains the next steps to book your appointment.

Application Process

Before applying to the College, all internationally educated nurses (IENs) must first apply through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS). NNAS is a national online application service developed by nursing regulatory bodies across Canada.

NNAS is the mandatory first step for any IEN applicant who:

  • is a graduate of a nursing education program outside of Canada
  • has never been registered as a registered nurse anywhere within Canada
  • is currently or has been registered as an RN with the regulatory body in the country where they received their entry-level RN education

For more information about this new first step in the IEN application process, please visit www.nnas.ca.

Applying in Manitoba

After the NNAS advisory report has been generated, you are welcome to submit an application directly to the College. We will assess your application to determine if you are eligible for registration as an RN in Manitoba.
