NNAS restricts the collection and use of your personal information to purposes relating to the assessment of your credentials for nursing in Canada. It will use and provide access to your information to verify and authenticate the information and documents in your application, and to prepare and send an assessment report to each Canadian nursing regulatory body to which you have applied. The Privacy Policy sets out in more detail how NNAS uses your information.
