Getting Referred

Please visit the referring organizations’ websites to ensure you are fulfilling the unique eligibility criteria they require.

Dual-track​ RN/LPN: two professions, one assessment​

Unique to the Inspire Global Assessment competency assessment is the opportunity for you to be assessed as a Registered Nurse (RN) and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at the same time – we call this a dual-track assessment. 

The dual-track assessment aims to get you into the health care workforce as quickly as possible, while saving you time and money in the long run. Learn more about how it works​. ​​

  • You must be referred by both the Nurses Association of New Brunswick (NANB) and the Association of New Brunswick Licensed Practical Nurses (ANBLPN). 
  • Once you have completed your competency assessment, we will send the results for the RN assessment to NANB and the results of the LPN assessment to ANBLPN.
  • There is one fee​​ ​for the dual-track assessment.

Please note: Trained LPNs​ cannot ask to be assessed in the role of an RN unless they have met the RN educational requirements set out by the regulatory college.​

What happens after Inspire Global Assessments receives my referral?

​​​Once we have received a referral directly from your referring organization, you will receive an email from us to get your assessment started.
