NNAS Advisory Report Results

This thread is intended to keep record of Internationally Educated Nurses' NNAS Advisory Report Results (nurses applying for license in Canada). It will help us all to know what the different outcomes have been and what direction was recommended by licensing bodies-- that we can determine whether there is consistency and so others can prepare for what might be required of them.

If you have begun or completed the NNAS process, please comment here and indicate:

1) Where you obtained your nursing education and type of education

2) What your NNAS Advisory Report stated (non-comparable, somewhat comparable, comparable)

3) Which provincial licensing body/bodies you have applied to

4) Whether you have evidence of safe practice in the past 3 years

5) What the provincial body directed you to do next (after your NNAS Advisory Report was issued)

6) Any final conclusions/comments

I will begin:

1) New York, BSN (4 year degree)

2) Non-comparable

3) Ontario and Alberta

4) Complete IENCAP examination (OSCE at Touchstone Institute)

5) Yes

6) Currently registered for IENCAP exam date in March 2017.

HI!!

I'm a British Nurse.

1) Obtained my Nursing degree (Adult) in London England. 3 year BSc Honours.

2) Applied to NNAS under RN category 29/01/16 FINALLY got my report on 14/01/17! COMPARABLE!!

3) I have just paid the fees to apply to CNO (Ontario) as RN.

4) I am currently practicing as a RN in the UK so have evidence of this in pay slips and contract etc.

5) I haven't heard from CNO yet and would like to know what usually happens if you get a comparable report and apply to them.

6) I am yet to get PR or a working visa for Canada so am still living in UK. Applied for express entry May 2016 but CRS points 438 and Ontario PNP has been closed since FEB 16 I think.

NEEEEEEEED TO GET STUDYING FOR NCLEX-RN

hi, i'm also a uk nurse, is it difficult to apply for nnas? how long have you been working as a nurse in the uk?

@kate_UK check out "NNAS experience" on this forum and you will be able to read all about the NNAS process. I found it incredibly helpful.

1) 2nd degree BSN, George Mason University, US

2) Comparable and somewhat comparable results

3) Registered as RN in BC within 2 weeks

4) Last worked in US August 2016

5) No equivalency testing required from CRNBC

6) It took me about 3 months to get all of my information submitted to NNAS. They lost one of the documents I sent (so make sure you require signature or other confirmation of delivery for everything). NNAS also refused the form from my employer because I used my address as the return address on the SASE envelope I provided to my manager. They also tried to refuse the form from my school, stating a box wasn't checked- my school advisor was able to forward a copy she took before sending it to prove it was in fact complete. took 17 weeks from the time my NNAS application was complete and "under review" until I finally received an Advisory Report. I called and emailed multiple times and after week 16 asked in writing to speak with a manager given the amount of time that had passed..days later I had a report.

1) Where you obtained your nursing education and type of education

BSc (Hons) First Class, Adult Nursing - England

2) What your NNAS Advisory Report stated (non-comparable, somewhat comparable, comparable)

Non-Comparable

3) Which provincial licensing body/bodies you have applied to

CRNBC

4) Whether you have evidence of safe practice in the past 3 years

Yes, I am currently practicing as a nurse, employed full time in the NHS

5) What the provincial body directed you to do next (after your NNAS Advisory Report was issued)

I have been directed do complete NCAS assessment and am scheduled to complete this in July 2017

6) Any final conclusions/comments

Really struggled with NNAS, found it to be long, slow, and the communication was horrible. My best advice is to just keep on contacting them and chasing things up. I personally found email better then phone as it provides you with evidence of what is discussed.

Hi. With regards to the employer form, is it really necessary to give the form to your manager or to the HR? Please advise. I'm from philippines but currently working as a staff nurse here in Singapore.

Which form are you asking about?

From the nnas. They have a form for the employer. So my question is who to complete it the nurse manager or the HR?

Can I ask another question. Can u help me or recommend what is the best way. I'm currently working in Singapore and planning to move to Canada under student visa. Will there be any problem if I just enrol as a practical nurse first? Or should I continue my current plan to get assessment from nnas. The reason behind is that when I check d the school that's offering bridging for ien they need a letter from cno that I am required to do bridging?

I know this is a bit old but I got so excited about the fact things seem to be moving in the right direction so thought I would add mine in as I sort of lost all hope waiting for my NNAS report to come back.

Comparable

5) What the provincial body directed you to do next (after your NNAS Advisory Report was issued)

Waiting for their review.

6) Any final conclusions/comments

Applied to NNAS in Jan '18, all info was received by them by June '18. Report was issued in July '19!!

Hi I'm a UK Registered Nurse and moved to Alberta with my husband in April 2018.

1) Where you obtained your nursing education and type of education

UK - Advanced Diploma & BSc Adult Nursing

2) What your NNAS Advisory Report stated (non-comparable, somewhat comparable, comparable)

Comparable for RN

Somewhat Comparable for LPN

3) Which provincial licensing body/bodies you have applied to

CARNA and CLPNA

4) Whether you have evidence of safe practice in the past 3 years

Yes

5) What the provincial body directed you to do next (after your NNAS Advisory Report was issued)

CARNA recommended completion of modules in both Pediatrics and Obstetrics

CLPNA application is far more involved and requires additional paperwork for the UK, this is still in progress

6) Any final conclusions/comments

I don't understand why my results for LPN seem to worse than RN and in addition, the IEN applications seems to be in far more details. Counter-intuitive.

6) Any final conclusions/comments

I cant believe the Canadian Nursing System is so *** up. Since when USA educated nurses became less than Canadian Nurses. If I am not wrong Canada only adopted the NCLEX in 2015 and where did it came from? USA and now suddently someone with a BSN degree from the USA does not meet the requirements to take the same NCLEX exam in canada. Also, can someone explain to me why is the NNAS located in The USA? Canada did not have enough space or capable people to do the job here? The goverment or somone needs to do something about the NNAS.
