Tests of Competence 2021

We recommend that you spend at least 2 weeks reading and utilising these resources. Preparation for the tests does not include direct teaching at the University – this site will provide you with key areas which you will need to become familiar with as a Registered Nurse, Nursing Associate, or Midwife working in the United Kingdom. The information here should serve as a guide to inform your development rather than be used as a definite list.

Please note that the information on this site may alter when there are changes in the Test Processes as a result of evaluation or developments in practice, policies or procedures.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you the best of luck and we look forward to welcoming you on your test day.

If you have any queries, please contact the Test of Competence Centre by email on ctc@northampton.ac.uk.
