The New Scenarios and Skills in NMC OSCE

OSCE New Scenarios and Skill Stations

New Update in NMC OSCE 2022


The latest Part 2 Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) has had several changes as part of the ongoing competency test:

As part of your learning and preparation for the OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination), there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Firstly, you should refer to the reading lists provided by your institution to make sure you have a comprehensive understanding of the relevant topics. Additionally, it is important that you understand and apply the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) Code to all aspects of your practice, as this will be a key factor in determining your competency as a nurse or midwife.

To help you prepare for the OSCE, we have also provided some useful documents, such as mock OSCE materials and station timings. These will give you a better idea of what to expect on the day of the exam and help you to feel more confident when you sit it. By the time you sit the OSCE, you should be competent at practising at the level of a newly qualified nurse or midwife in the UK. This means that your approach to the stations should reflect the actions you would take in a contemporary UK clinical setting.

Finally, please note that we have provided marking criteria for the relevant fields to help guide your preparation. However, it is important to remember that this should only be used to supplement your education and learning, and should not be relied upon as the sole means of preparing for the exam.

From June 14th in all five research centres, it will add the following new materials to the existing tests:

OSCE Mock test

Some applicants will be allowed for taking the current NMC OSCE, until the latest test has gone live for a limited time. So they do this as a refresher for general test maintenance purposes.Maintain a positive mindset throughout your preparation. Remind yourself of your strengths and accomplishments, and believe in your ability to succeed. Surround yourself with supportive individuals who can encourage and motivate you.

With Mentor Merlin’s OSCE comprehensive training programmes, you can trust that you will receive the best guidance and support to help you achieve your goals. So whether you are feeling uncertain about how to prepare for the OSCE exam or simply looking to enhance your skills and knowledge, we are here to help you every step of the way.

One of the biggest challenges faced by OSCE training providers is the lack of a standardized method for explaining information, which often leads to chaos and confusion among candidates. At our organization, we firmly believe in promoting information equality and ensuring that our candidates receive accurate and up-to-date information that is relevant to their OSCE preparation. To achieve this, we constantly update our curriculum and training materials to reflect the latest developments in the field and to provide our candidates with the best possible preparation for the OSCE exam. Our goal is to help our candidates succeed by equipping them with the knowledge and skills they need to perform well on the exam and achieve their career goals.
