UK Nursing Jobs for Overseas Nurses
Starting October 2014, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has established a mandatory two-part competency test for Nurses and Midwives seeking registration in the UK. These tests are applicable to all professionals who have been trained outside the UK.
These tests of competence are designed to measure the candidates against the current UK pre-registration standards, and judge their skills and competencies in professional nursing or midwifery. The first part of this test is the CBT (Computer-Based Test), which is conducted at Pearson VUE test centres in your native country. The second part of the test is the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), which will be conducted at designated centres in the UK.
