I declare that all of the information I have provided in this application is complete and truthful. I understand that NSCN will immediately stop the assessment of my application to write the NP examination and that my application will be cancelled, licensure will be refused, and I will be prohibited from applying to NSCN in the future if:

Candidates that engage in irregular behaviour, misconduct, or cheating either prior, during or after the Canadian Nurse Practitioner Examination (CNPE) and/or do not follow an invigilator’s warning to discontinue inappropriate behaviour on exam day may be dismissed from the writing centre with no refund on their exam fee. Unauthorized production, reproduction or publication of the exam questions is also prohibited by copyright laws. In addition, measures and statistical procedures are implemented to detect cheating (e.g., copying answers from another candidate, voluntarily or involuntarily providing answers to another candidate). Unauthorized disclosure of the contents of the exam questions and any other form of cheating is an unethical behaviour and shall result in sanctions. If the regulatory authority determines that a candidate has cheated on the exam, the candidate is automatically assigned a fail result and the writing is counted as an exam attempt. Other sanctions may be imposed and may extend to denial of a licence and/or disqualification from future registrations for the CNPE.

Irregular behaviour, misconduct and/or cheating include but are not limited to the following:
  • copying, producing, reproducing, removing exam questions and/or responses (in any format) or taking notes about the exam from the writing centre exam room or outside the exam room
  • disclosing exam questions or responses, in whole or in part, in any form or by any means (orally, in writing, electronically, on the Internet, “brain dumping,” “discussion boards” or otherwise such as but not limited to Facebook, Twitter or other forms of social media)
  • giving or receiving assistance of any kind

  • bringing study aids (test preparation materials or study materials, textbooks, notebooks, classroom notes, etc.) to the writing centre or accessing or attempting to access such study aids at any time after the start of the exam including but not limited to washroom breaks
  • seeking help in answering questions (in person, by phone, text, by e-mail, etc.), engaging in disruptive disturbances or causing disturbances of any kind, and/or failing to follow invigilator instructions
