The UK’s Nursing & Midwifery Council has announced that it is making changes to the CBT and the Objective Structured Clinical Examination or OSCE for nurses and midwives trained outside the UK and European Economic Area.
According to the NMC’s website from summer 2020, this rule will go live:
The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE)
Currently OSCE examination was judged on 6 stations, which included 4 stations based on scenarios and rest two stations was on skills, but as per new changes OSCE will have 10 stations:
- Four stationswill continue to be linked together around a scenario: the APIE (one station for assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation)
- Six stationswill test skills, before it was only four, now they have added two new stations as well.
- Two new stations added– one will assess the candidate’s values and behaviors and the other will assess evidence-based practice
