Before your preferred date of attendance, there will be both reading and independent activities to complete in support of the virtual shared learning activities. These materials will be shared with you two weeks in advance of the TTT date to permit you to complete them before your attendance and will require approximately 3 hours of independent study, video activity and reading.
These materials will provide some of the relevant theory and information, along with a number of activities which encourage the reader to reflect on their previous experience and the training needs of their teams in their working environments
Also prior to your attendance you are asked to familiarize yourself with the following OSCE support materials, particularly if you are new to supporting the role of the International Nurse in support of their OSCE exams. Our ToC2021 downloads include a reading list, marking criteria and mock OSCE.
If you are new to the Test of Competence and OSCE’s as an assessment method, you are advised to visit the NMC Test of Competence website and related pages which explain the process for candidates wanting to join the NMC register from overseas or wanting to rejoin the register after a long period away from practice.
Candidates who have previously attended the workshop commented that this pre preparation is essential to engage with the learning activities on the day.
