In B.C. / NCAS Exam information


Hi fellow Nurses!

I moved from NY to Vancouver, B.C. and am preparing to take the 2 part NCAS exam, the Computer Based Assessment and Simulation Lab Assessment.

Has anyone here ever taken this exam before and have any information as to best ways to prepare for these exams or where to study from? I'm studying for it as if I'm taking my NCLEX again. I'm reviewing the Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment book as well as the Saunders review book. At this point, I have no sense of direction as to where to begin and end and was wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to what to expect?

Also, does anyone know how soon you will receive your results after taking these exams? Did anyone end up having to take extra courses in order to obtain your BC RN license?

Any word of advice would be very helpful! It seems this exam is fairly new as I cannot find any information on it which makes it difficult for me to know how to prepare in a short amount of time.

Thanks in advance :)
