National Nursing Assessment Service

Information Update on the Application Process for Internationally Educated Nurses

The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba (CRPNM) will stop accepting IEN applications on August 11, 2014.  After this date, all internationally educated nurses who want to register with the CRPNM must first apply directly through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), a national online application service developed by the nursing regulatory bodies across Canada. This new streamlined application process will go into effect on August 12, 2014 at 1 PM Eastern Standard Time.

NNAS will be the mandatory first step for any internationally educated nurse (IEN) applicant who:

  • is a graduate of a nursing education program outside of Canada; and
  • is not currently registered to practise as a nurse anywhere within Canada as a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN).
