All nurses who were educated outside of Canada and are seeking initial registration or license to practice in a Canadian province (with the exception of Quebec and the Territories) as a registered nurse (RN) must first complete an application to the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS). The NNAS verifies credentials for internationally educated nurses, compares them to Canadian standards and provides a secure, centralized electronic repository for education and registration credentials.
The NNAS application process will produce an Advisory Report that includes an evaluation of your education according to approved Canadian standards and compares your education to current Canadian nursing requirements. Information provided through the Nursing Education Form, Nursing Registration Form and Nurse Practice Employment Form will be reviewed and verified against the global database and forwarded to the SRNA when the Advisory Report is complete. When the application is approved you must complete additional documentation through the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association.
Additional detail and forms are available at www.nnas.ca.
My application through the NNAS was successful. Now what?
