    To ensure public protection, each province requires graduates for practical nursing to meet set requirements that include passing an examination that measures the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a new entry-level  Practical Nurse (LPN/RPN). Every five years in collaboration with British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) and College of Nursing of Ontario (CNO), NCSBN conducts a practice analysis to analyze entry-level LPN/RPNs Canadian practice. Using the data collected from the practice analysis, the REx-PN Test Plan is developed, which guides the selection of content and behaviors to be tested during REx-PN administration.
