    Read the previous posts in this thread. They explain how OSCE assessment is done. You can't prepare for them other than to review your basic nursing education and to read the list of competencies issued by CNO- the link for which is in one of my previous posts.

    I have been working in canadian hospital for 3 years as an RPN. I do same work as an RNs. There is no difference in between RN and RPN. RPN get same assignment and In the night RN is assigned to pts and In the day RPN is assigned to same patients.
    I have 3 years Canadian Nursing experience, Do I still need to go for practical test?

    Anyway, I don't know where / when we have to register for this test. I called there and lady said, she doesn't know about test date even.

    Hi, I guess we're all in the same boat. Just this Tuesday, I received a note from CNO advising me to take the OSCE exam. It has been a year since the last time I worked in a hospital. Since I came here in Canada (I'm from Philippines, by the way), of course, I never had any nursing experience. Now, I'm a little bit anxious on what to expect. Although I know I have the nursing skills and knowledge but I do think that at least I need a refresher. I am looking for resources (textbooks, cds, websites, etc) that can help me prepare for the exam but I couldn't find anything. I wonder if you could help me.
    Also, honestly, I am considering the 2nd option..to file for review of consideration. I hope that would help.

    This will be the first time that the CNO is asking IENs to do the OSCE and it seems like the exam will be as JasonNZ posted and there is no need to take a prep course. The CNO recommends that you prepare for the OSCE by reviewing the competencies and ethics document, it would be wise to review them carefully. After reviewing the documents, you can review health assessments for nurses on youtube and practice head to toe physical assessments. Also, try and become familiar with basic healthcare equipment used in Canada.

    The information on the written test is on the CEHPEA link that Jason posted
    The IEN Objective Written Exam (MCQ) consists of questions based on 5 RN Entrance to Practice Competency Domains:

    • Professional Responsibility & Accountability
    • Specialized Body of Knowledge
    • Ethical Practice
    • Service to the Public
    • Professional Self Regulation

    I do not have a sample question but there are quizzes in the CNO quarterly journal "The Standard", the journal is on the CNO website, look in the table of contents for "Quiz" or "Take the Quiz"
    The Standard - CNO

    Just received the same letter yesterday. I am also in the process of deciding whether to take option 1-have CHEPEA evaluate me or 2-registration committee evaluate my papers. I have no idea which has the better pros than cons. I am also an IEN.
