Registered Psychiatric Nurse Regulators Announce Changes to the RPNCE effective May 2016

The 2015 implementation of the new Entry Level Competencies for the psychiatric nursing profession in Canada required that a new blueprint be developed for the Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Canada Examination (RPNCE).  The new blueprint will be implemented in May 2016.  At the same time, the total number of questions on the RPNCE will be decreased from the former 230-250 items (over two books) to a single, 4-hour exam of approximately 200 questions.
