    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    HI guys! Quick question about some documentation used in the osce. I've been studying the assessment document with all the ADL's on there but ive just spotted the pre operative clinic assessment form. It's layout is completely different to the regular assessment documents. Has anyone had that documentation come up in the OSCE or even with surgical patients have they have just the usual assessment documentation with next of kin info on the front? Any help would be really appreciated. i dont want to cram my head with this new information if it isnt required. hopefully someone can help!

    Hey guys, has anyone recieved information regarding rate of pay? I've asked a couple of times and about a contract but theyve blatantly disregarded the questions and only addressed other parts of the emails. I havent pushed the subject yet because i dont have my pin but still it would be nice to know...
  3. That's right, the OSCE certainly isn't a true representation of a persons competence. I've always struggled with OSCE's even at uni, i just can't act natural in that kind of environment- but i am a excellent nurse (if i say so myself), as i'm sure you all are too. What gripes me if that in this OSCE people are failing for medial reasons, I think unless we are unsafe in our practice- administering wrong medication, breaking antt, documenting something incorrectly then certainly fail us.. but otherwise, throw us a bone and understand we're in an extremely stressful situation. As far as i know a trust hires you either privately or through an agency and they provide the training however you're locked into a 2 or 3 year contract. Again, i am so pro training days, information meetings etc etc but if it is going to be made available for one then it must be available for all. standard.
  4. i have had a lot of the same issues. Very little offered resource wise. I also find it frustrating that there are no training centres available to privately attend to. People employed in trusts are recieving specific training from people who have attended the osce centre to have training sessions to then go back and teach the people at the trust. I am not saying that this shouldn't be happening but what i am saying is it is a training resource that should be available to all candidates. Us who don't have access to this training are at a major disadvantage.

    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    Hi guys, 2 small questions. 1. does anyone knowif there are clocks in the stations? i just want to know if i need to buy a fob watch. 2. when we introduce ourselves have people been saying their full name and that theyre one of the nurses at the hospital? or that theyre an nmc applicant etc.
  6. great advice! thanks for that. ps- congrats!

    OSCE Documentation

    Hi Matthew. I think the blank care plans are the ones that we would be using in the OSCE. I think it's a bit crazy to have to reference current best evidence specifically. I'm also struggling with the assessment part. Are you planning on using the AL model that it shown on the COPD case study? Or combining it with head to toe? Because i feel like the AL one would leave big holes medically. Also, Where did you find this care plan powerpoint? I can't seem to locate it on the NILE site?
  8. yeah thats what i thought.. so nervous i'm stressing about every detail. Have you booked your OSCE? The website also seems to be using the AL assessment framework too which seems like it would miss a lot of important medical information, don't know whether just to combine thatmethod with top to toe. Is anyone else having these thoughts?
  9. Hey guys, ive booked my osce for june and am stuck on the assessment part, the sample assessment sheet has the ADL assessment, are others planning on doing top to toe and just encorporating those 6 or 7 subheadings in? I also feel confused about the death and dying part, if i get a case study who is in for day surgery or a simple procedure i feel asking about end of life care would instil anxiety?

    OSCE REVISION for NMC REGISTRATION

    Here's another anal observation (please let me know if i'm being ridiculous and should climb back into my cave!) ha. Pocedure guideline for pretty much all of the injectable medicines preparation say to expel any air etc the syringe (with the rationale on the side saying to ensure the correct anount of drug in the syringe) and then switch needles if required. Now, in my experience, i always draw an excess of medication toe the needle that i'll be administering the drug. Tiny detail.. but still. I think crazy disorganised journey through this process aeft me a bit anxious.

    yeah you're right. I've found it's really been inhibiting my studies because i get fixated on points that i can't find definite answers to, also the royal marsdens procedure guidelines always have so many points to them which makes memorising them exactly hard aswell. I had kind of come to the thought that surely you couldn't be penalised for taking extra precautions? And every video i've watched on youtube etc most of the instructors don gloves. i'm taking mine late june, how about you? Talking to you all, really calms my nerves- starting to get anxious!!
