The Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) needs you!

NCAS is looking for nursing professionals to serve as subject matter experts (SMEs) in its competency assessment development process.

Who we are

NCAS is a competency-based assessment service for nursing professionals applying for practicing registration who cannot provide evidence that they meet the education and/or competency requirements for registration. It is a three-step assessment involving a computer-based assessment (which can be taken internationally), and a simulation lab assessment and oral assessment (which take place at Langara College in BC).

What are we looking for?

To be eligible, potential candidates must:

  • Hold practicing registration, in good standing, with BCCNM
  • Have at least 2 y​ears’ experience practising as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN)
  • Be familiar with the entry level competencies of one or more of the following professions in British Columbia: HCAs, LPNs, RNs or RPNs
  • Have excellent oral, written and well-developed interpersonal communication skills
  • Have solid IT skills; the work might involve using an online platform
  • Be comfortable working intensively over a short period of time


Compensation varies by the nature of the work performed, and will be detailed in each invitation sent to the SME pool. ​
