WELCOME to the NHS Scotland Academy site for NMC OSCE Preparation for Educators.

Nurse with patient in bed

Increasing our understanding of the international nurse journey and NMC OSCE preparation should have a positive impact on our relationship building, encouraging understanding and compassion during what can be a particularly stressful time for International Nurses. 

This resource is designed to support Educators develop awareness and understanding of the rigorous assessment processes applied by the NMC for international nurses gaining registration.

The module should help to build confidence in supporting nurses with their OSCE preparation, through improving understanding of the Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation processes, through becoming more familiar with the clinical skills requirements, and through facilitating non-technical learning opportunities, such as, SBAR communication and documenting care plans.  

The module includes resources to help prepare nurses for NMC OSCE. These can be used as individual components or brought together to run a full preparation programme with a mock exam. There are also some top tips for Educators conducting NMC OSCE preparation, such as:

  • What environment factors do I need to consider?
  • What staff resource do I require?
  • How many learners do I require to run a preparation programme?

These considerations will help to inform what best meets the learners needs for OSCE preparation.
