    Been through the test twice and unfortunately failed. This test made me lose confidence in my ability as a nurse despite being qualified in my country and worked as one. This test is not a test of competence but rather a test of nerves.

    Hello!

    Ive been reading comments from this blog and yes i do agree that the exam is not really easy to pass even if they are basic nursing procedures. I took my my first resit exam last Wednesday and then by friday im already in the register. Praise God! Practice practice practice is the only key and if there is a chance in the ward for daily dressing to a patient grab it! IM SC drug rounds admissions discharges do it to a real patient in the area, its far better practice and have it checked by ur mentor ofcourse.. practice practice practice. Watch out for the care plan because they do it quite different here.... Best of luck for those who are about to take the exam. Its such a big relief once you pass! happy days! And infairness to the examiners, i believe theyre trying their best to help and be approachable enough, dont hesitate to ask questions before u start so u know how to deal with your particular station like bls

    Has anyone here made an appeal to UoN. I failed my osce twice already and they failed me because i did not put neuro obs on my care plan. I only stated a specific neuro obs which is gcs. I heared that making an appeal to UoN is worthless as they are really strict when it come to appeals

    Well God in his good grace did not see fit for me to pass my first OSCE. I was nervous, despite the nice ladies at the exam centre, I forgot to do something really essential. I pray nerves do not get the better of me next time. I am waiting three months before my next attempt at the exam.

    From the care planning book I have read it says you must be specific in your care plans. That to me means that I will say how often I am observing my patient and how soon between observations too. Did you do this? If you did this you should be fine.

    Hi, I am about to take OSCE and preparing for it. I started to review a bit bec I have heard that it is quite difficult. About care planning, are you also making nursing diagnosis? I use NANDA, is that fine as my resources?

    Thank you.
