I have created my NCAS Online Services account; how do I upload my application and Identification documents?
Make sure the document is in one of the formats listed (i.e. PDF, JPEG, etc.).
Please upload only the required documents listed on the website. And please do not upload them multiple times. Uploading multiple copies or documents that aren't required will delay the review process.
You will not be able to view your documents once you upload them to your account; however, you will receive an email from NCAS letting you know that your documents have been received.
What types of ID documents do I need to upload?
You will need to submit two forms of identification. Both forms of ID need to be notarized, government issued, and valid (not expired).
Your primary ID must include your name, photo, date of birth, and signature.
Your secondary ID must contain at least your name and signature.
Examples of valid identification include any of the following government-issued documents:
Social Insurance numbers, Social Security numbers, credit cards and debit cards are NOT acceptable ID.
You must have copies of both your primary and secondary identification notarized in person by either a lawyer or notary public. You will probably need to pay a fee to have these documents notarized. You will need to upload these documents to your online services account.
Why do I need to have my ID documents notarized?
What if the name on my application form doesn't match the name on my ID documents?
If the name on your ID does not match the name on the application, or the name on your primary ID is different from that on your secondary ID, you must submit additional documentation to provide proof of name change (e.g. a marriage certificate, change of name affidavit, or divorce decree). These supporting documents also must be notarized and uploaded to your account.

NCAS has received all of my documents. What is the next step?
Once the NCAS team has received your application and documents, we will decide if you need a competency assessment. The NCAS competency assessment is made up of two parts: a computer-based assessment (CBA) that must be completed in a proctored testing setting; and a simulation lab assessment (SLA), where you get to demonstrate your nursing skills in a simulated nursing lab in Vancouver. Our two-part competency assessment measures your strengths and gaps in nursing skills, knowledge, and judgement.
If you need a competency assessment, we will send you an email about how to schedule your Computer Based Assessment (CBA) and your Simulation Lab Assessment (SLA). We urge you to complete these two assessments quickly (within three months). If you need an extension, contact the NCAS office by email at: email@example.com or by phone at 604-742-6376 or toll-free (Canada only) 1-833-742-6376.
