Conducting examination is a vital part of the process of pre-employment assessment and accreditation. Candidates who apply for any post in a particular organization must conduct a pre-examination in order to meet the requirements set by the company for the post. In Canada, the Human Resources (HR) Department sets the pre-entry examinations that must be conducted by the potential candidate. Most of these examinations are comprised of multiple-choice and short answer type questions that require candidates to be factual in answering them.
As per the HR regulations, these examinations must be provided by the Canadian Commission on Professional Nursing or the Nursing Council of Canada. The Nursing Council of Canada regulates most of the exams that are conducted by the private regulated entities. Most of these nurses’ associations have their own set of rules and regulations that guide the conduct of the examination. Candidates who wish to be accredited as a nurse must pass this pre-entry examination, before they can become an eligible nurse in the said organization.
Many institutes offering nursing degrees also have private examination rooms. These examination rooms are meant for those who wish to take the examination for professional advancement in the said field. Candidates looking to take the said examination for professional advancement need to register in these examination rooms. Registration is free of charge and generally takes only a day or two to be properly approved. Once a student has registered, he/she can access the examination rooms and take the required tests.
