Executive Assistant
National Nursing Assessment Service
WORK FROM HOME (Telecommute), Winnipeg, Manitoba
closed 5 days ago (Thu, 28 May)
full time - term / contract

The National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) is a young, innovative organization that was created through an unprecedented collaboration among Canada’s nurse regulators, working together to develop a common national assessment process for internationally educated nurses (IENs) seeking registration to practise in Canada.

Established in 2012, NNAS achieved a great deal during its start-up years. In addition to building the new organization from the ground up, NNAS partnered with countless organizations, working groups and individuals to develop, test and refine the service. This work culminated in the 2015 launch of a new, streamlined single entry process for IENs applying for licensure to practise in Canada.

 Based in Winnipeg, MB, the Executive Assistant will work closely with the Executive Director to continue the progress that has been achieved to date. This is a full-time, 12-month term role.
