June 2010 – May 2015
Each provincial and territorial nursing regulatory body in Canada is responsible for ensuring that the individuals it registers as nurses meet an acceptable level of competence before beginning to practise.

The level of competence of registered nurses in all provinces and territories except Quebec is measured, in part, by the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE). CNA develops and maintains the CRNE through its testing company, Assessment Strategies Inc., and in collaboration with the regulatory authorities. The provincial and territorial nursing regulatory authorities administer the exam and determine eligibility to write it.

The purpose of the CRNE is to protect the public by ensuring that the entry-level registered nurse possesses the competencies required to practise safely and effectively.

Exam length and format
The CRNE consists of approximately 200 multiple-choice questions. The CRNE is a paper and pencil exam offered in French and English. The exam consists of one book, which is administered over the course of four hours.

The exam consists of approximately 200 multiple-choice questions, each designed to measure a specific competency required of entry-level registered nurses. Some of the questions are presented within cases in which a brief description of a case is followed by a group of three to five questions. The remainder of the exam consists of single, independent questions that are unrelated to a case or to other questions on the exam. About 20 of the questions are experimental.

Every question on the exam contains a stem and four options. The stem typically consists of one to three sentences that provide relevant information and the specific nursing question that is being asked. One of the four options is the correct (or best) answer, and the remaining three are incorrect or less appropriate options.

Question Presentation
Some questions on the CRNE are presented as independent questions and some are presented within cases. Independent questions contain the information necessary to answer the questions, while c ase-based questions include a set of three to five questions associated with a brief health-care scenario.
