    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    There would need to be a substantiated reason to deny you joining the register Lizzie

    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    Dear picachu12, A script is unnecessary and a burden to recall. What is better is just yourself with your own interactions & decision making, with reference to Royal Marsden. Preparing for the exam is helpful with others. Are you among other nurses due to take the OSCE? If you let me know when it is you may be able to join us with preparation

    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    Hi Skys, My advice would be, identify all skills that you'll be tested on - from the candidate handbook. Then practice each one, videoing yourself as you go. Mark your performance in accordance with Royal Marsden standard, including the interpersonal skills that you use. When you feel that your anxiety when performing these skills (in a non- realistic set-up) is diminished, ask someone to observe you and assess - again using Marsden. Ask them for and be open to feedback

    Nmc Osce scenario and skill refresh

    It just means that they've been repeating the same limited skills and scenarios since the start and that is Herve prepared some new ones. They will only be those within the original list as stated in the candidate info booklet. hope that helps

    No that's untrue, if fact it's unlikely that you'd find a date in the same month unless there were special circumstances

    Wound care is a skills station, if you want to talk PM me
  8. seddie151 & iampresrn my suggestion would be to use the entry visa first. There are very strict rules around restricted tier 2 visas now (for nurses). These rules are that you MUST take your first attempt 3 months from the start of employment (very hard when you have come to a new country that you have to orientate to). Your second and successful attempt MUST be taken 8 months from the start of employment. If not successful on second attempt, some sponsors will cancel your sponsorship as there has to be a 6 month gap between 2nd and 3rd attempt. So leave to remain would only be possible if the second attempt was at month two and a half...crazy!! in terms of sponsor, seek out one who has the best package of OSCE prep who will intensively work with you to success. That doesn't mean tabloid PR successes, with pics of nurses. What you want to know is the detail of the programme. Dont give up, we need you great nurses...just be savvy :)
  9. Dear Jazzmineee, Many people are passing OSCE but the rate of success at second sitting remains higher than at the first. Do you have a sense of what you did well last time and what you could improve upon? What is your main fear? Happy to talk on the phone if that would help...send me a message if so

    American RN with no experience moving to the UK

    Dear h_bates 23, This is a difficult place to find yourself in...the NMC insist on 1 full year (or part time equivalent) consolidated experience as an RN in the country where you trained. This cannot be achieved in the UK unfortunately. My suggestions would be: * Contact a university which delivers the BSc in Nursing and ask them to APL (accredit your prior learning). This will reduce the required study and practice time to gain a UK BSc. * In terms of the work that you can do, I would suggest an Assistant practitioner role. This is similar to what you will know as a LPN, but the role is not currently registered. This role will enable you to exercise much of your knowledge and skill gained in your nursing degree, under the indirect supervision of a Registered Practitioner. It may be worthwhile having NARIC assess your qualification for equivalency as employers rely on the NMC looking at the content of educational programmes and in this case they won't have done so. Happy to advise if you have any further questions

    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    Hi eesmith91, The stations will be the same. The only things that could be different are: 1) the scenario/ patient profile; and 2) the two skills Best wishes Karen
  13. The best way is on my email in my previous post Rorich. It would be very easy to offer the support needed to prepare for OSCE for those already in the country....but needs to be practical and hands on. This can be arranged if there are enough people who wish to have this experience?
