    Hi! Anyone here who will process their visa application from Saudi Arabia and will fly directly to UK? Is there a need to get a TB test? I've heard from some that it is no longer a requirement if someone has been a resident of the middle east but I just want to be sure. Thanks!

    Hey John. Sorry I dont have any material to send, but I would advise you to read all the blueprints in detail. Go though all the links. Thats what helped me pass it in first attempt.

    Hi Fellow future UK RNs

    I took my CBT today and to say the least it moderately difficult. There were certain subjects that I didn't focus on Ie.. PDGs, Independent Prescribers, Newborns etc. The thing that upset me the most is that NO CALCULATORS were allowed! The proctor said it was on the computer but there was no icon for it and then they said that they were not allowed. SO I had to scribble on my scratch paper D/H x Q and V/T x C =R, hopefully I got that correct. The CODE was on there simple questions of which area does XXX come from (Prioritize People, Practice Effectively, Trust/Professionalism, Safety). A few theory questions Freud etc.

    I had a lot that were flagged due to calculations and PDGs, student nurse questions etc. A lot of basic questions too: S/S DM I, CVP, safety, when to call MD S/S shock, when to take certain meds like Synthroid, self medication of patients.

    My fingers are crossed!
    Please note that this is a public forum and by writing about cbt topics here you may breach the confedentiality of the exam. I hope your exam went well though.

    Does anybody here know the timeline they usually give for you to get to the UK once you get the DL?
    Hi. After having received your DL, you will need to have COS from UK hospital and then you apply for the visa. This visa decides when you can fly and not the DL. Hope this helps.

    To all who have their CBT approaching. NMC blueprints and royal marsden is what you guys need to follow. Dont miss a single link from blueprints. Its just nursing in CBT. All that we had studied in nursing school including the nursing foundation and its theories and some very basic coping mechanisms etc. Use your common sense when answering at times. Keep your patient first when you answer. Royal marsden (I repeat) is must. you should know which NMC code covers what. Hope this helps. All the best.

    Hi. Do you have something else to recommend? Please do recommend!

    I write comments based on my own experience. This is also what NMC asks us to read before sitting for CBT. I did what NMC said (blueprints and Royal marsden) and I was able to pass it in first attempt.

    Hi there

    After my second attempt I have passed CBT exam!! Now OSCE is next. I used mnemonics to remember the code and memorized all the formulas for drug calcs, a lot of safe guarding and what NOT to choose. I am glad I am done with this part. Good luck to all!
