2. METHODS AND NOTES


To become a nurse in Ontario an applicant must register with the College of Nurses of Ontario as a Registered Nurse, Registered Practical Nurse or Nurse Practitioner. Only members of the College are allowed to refer to themselves as nurses in Ontario and use the titles RN, RPN and NP. A valid certificate of registration from the College is required of all nurses who wish to practice nursing in Ontario. This section highlights two of the requirements for nursing registration in Ontario, which are relevant to this report: completion of Council-approved nursing education and registration exams. For a complete overview of the registration requirements, please visit www.cno.org/become-a-nurse.

2.1 Location of Initial Nursing Education


In this document, location of initial nursing education refers to where the initial education in the category or class to which the nursing exam relates occurred. It is summarized into two groups for analysis and reporting purposes, Ontario and outside Ontario. An Ontario nursing program is one that is: offered at an Ontario university or college and approved by Council of the College of Nurses of Ontario 1 for the purposes of registering as a nurse in Ontario. In Ontario, nursing programs that are approved for RN registration grant a university baccalaureate degree in nursing. Those that are approved for RPN registration grant a diploma in practical nursing from a College of Applied Arts and Technology. Programs approved for NP registration grant a post-baccalaureate certificate, a master degree, or a post-masters diploma. Exam statistics for writers who have not completed an Ontario nursing program are categorized as outside Ontario.

2.2 Registration Examination Requirement


RN and RPN applicants must successfully complete a Council-approved registration exam for the category to which they are applying. RN applicants complete the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE) while RPN applicants complete the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE).

NP applicants must successfully complete a Council-approved exam in the NP specialty (Adult, Paediatrics, Primary Health Care) to which they are applying. NP-Adult applicants complete the American Nurses Credentialing Center: Adult Nurse Practitioner Examination (ANCC Adult); NP-Paediatrics applicants complete the American Nurses Credentialing Center: Paediatric Nurse Practitioner Examination (ANCC
1

Council may also approve an accreditation process (e.g., Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing Accreditation for university baccalaureate degrees) or another body (e.g., third party) to provide approval of nursing programs for registration purposes.
College of Nurses of Ontario Nursing Registration Exams Report 2012

Paediatrics) and NP-Primary Health Care applicants complete the Canadian Nurse Practitioner Examination: Family All Ages (CNPE). These exams are all administered in Ontario. In addition, Council has approved additional exams not administered in Ontario that will fulfill the NP registration examination requirement2.This report only includes statistics for the NP exams administered in Ontario.

2.3 Data Collection


The College collects exam results on an ongoing basis from the exam providers. The numbers in this report include first-time exam writes and repeat writes. Since 2005, individuals are allowed three attempts to pass the General Class exam. Prior to 2005, the maximum number of attempts was six. For the Extended Class exam three attempts are allowed and prior to 2007 six attempts were allowed. The Ontario nursing program data tables contain first time writes only.

2.4 Data Suppression


The College is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of its members and applicants. Cell counts between one and four have been suppressed in this report and the value replaced by an asterisk (*). In cases where this is done, the next smallest cell count is also suppressed to ensure that the values cannot be derived. This value is replaced with two asterisks (**) to allow readers to know the value was not suppressed due to a low cell count. When there are multiple values between one and four in a table, only those values are suppressed. An exception is made when the low cell count is in the not specified category. Because this category does not provide any information, it does not need to be suppressed to protect privacy.
