If you're looking for study materials for the Canadian Nursing Assessment exams (CBA and SLE), I'd suggest starting with official resources provided by the regulatory body responsible for nursing in British Columbia. In this case, that would be the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP).

Here are a few steps you can take:

  • Check the BCCNP website. Visit the BCCNP website and look for information specifically related to the CBA (Canadian Nursing Assessment) and SLE (Substantially Equivalent Competence Assessment) exams. They often provide detailed information on exam content and recommended study materials.
  • Contact BCCNP directly. Reach out to the BCCNP for guidance on study materials. They may have specific recommendations or even provide study guides or practice exams.
  • Join nursing forums or communities. There are likely online forums or communities where nurses who have taken these exams share their experiences and study tips. There is a Canadian nurse forum here online. Joining these communities can help find study materials and get advice from those who have gone through the process.
  • Consider prep courses. Some organizations offer prep courses specifically tailored to help nurses prepare for exams like the CBA and SLE. These courses often include study materials, practice exams, and expert guidance.
  • Library resources. Check with libraries or educational institutions in your area for textbooks or reference materials that cover topics relevant to the exams.

Remember to give yourself plenty of time to study and prepare thoroughly. Good luck with your exam preparation and your journey to work in Canada!

Best wishes,
