NCAS rebranding to Inspire Global Assessments as of March 4, 2024


Effective March 4, 2024, the Nursing Community Assessment Services (NCAS) will be changing its name to Inspire Global Assessments/Inspire Évaluations Mondiales.

This change — including our new, bilingual name and logo —  better reflects the unique and innovative nature of our expanding service offerings and the global nature of the applicants we support. It will also mark the launch of our bilingual website and our new French-language assessment offered exclusively in New Brunswick.

NCAS has long served regulators, employers and applicants in provinces across Canada, and our services are in demand globally.  

What does this mean for you, as an applicant?

You will continue to receive excellent service. Your application will not be affected, and emails sent to our @ncasbc addresses will be redirected automatically. 

While our name and branding are changing, our commitment to valid, reliable, people-centered assessments is stronger than ever. We continue to be a key player in helping protect the Canadian public by evaluating the competencies of health professionals seeking to enter the work force.

Thank you in advance for your support as we make this change.​
