How to apply for the Test

Applying for Part Two (the OSCE)

Part two is a nursing or midwifery Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). The OSCE can only be sat after successfully passing Part one. The NMC can authorise a candidate to take Part two after successfully passing the assessment stage.

Please note that the Test Centre has selected dates available for all OSCE’s, but are limited in number for Child, Learning Disability and Mental Health Nursing and also Midwifery. Please ensure that you have secured an exam date prior to making any travel arrangements. We cannot guarantee a preferred date but will be able to give alternative options where possible. Please contact for all booking and pre-booking enquiries.
