How to prepare for your OSCE

It is essential that candidates prepare for the test of competence and we recommend at least 14 days preparation time from booking to test date to sufficiently prepare yourself. The test blue print on the NMC’s web site offers some useful links to online resources which may be helpful. On successful application and fee payment to Oxford Brookes University you will receive access to additional resources relevant to the test, i.e. manuals, videos and recommended reading.

As preparation for your OSCE, you can also visit The Royal Marsden Manuel of Clinical Nursing Procedures. You can log in using the details provided to you on your booking confirmation once you have been booked in with us.

The following documents will support your preparation for the OSCE. We highly recommend you take the time to read these.

Further Information and Documentation

Please find below documentation and information relating to both pre and post OSCE.

Further information on the Test of Competence can be found on the NMC website. You will also be able to find The NMC Code which outlines the professional standards that everyone on the NMC register must uphold throughout their practice.
