Alberta Registered Nurses Assessment Program (ARNAP) and the Internationally Educated Nurses Competency Assessment Program (IENCAP)

An important part of the application process for all internationally educated nurses is determining nursing program equivalency, for registration as a Registered Nurse.  For RN applicants, this means the Nursing Licensing Body evaluates the educational background to determine if you have successfully completed a program of study that has prepared you with the nursing knowledge, skill and judgment equal to that of a recent graduate of a Canadian university baccalaureate nursing program.

If the Nursing Licensing Body has determined that your program does not meet the program requirement, then you will be asked to complete an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) before the Nursing Licensing Body can proceed with your application.

The Alberta Registered Nurses Assessment Program (ARNAP) and the IENCAP is a standardized assessment that tests the knowledge, skills and judgement of internationally educated nurses (IENs) seeking nursing registration in Alberta and Ontario. In addition to nursing skills, the ARNAP/IENCAP will assess candidates’ language proficiency and comprehension, performance in client interactions, ethics, and professionalism.
