Here at Cotton Nursing Solutions, we have developed an adaptive training programme catered for Overseas Nurses and Return to Work Nurses preparing for their OSCE. Our preparation course can tailor for both individual candidates and Trusts / Organisations who have multiple candidates to prepare for their OSCE.

The aim of our OSCE preparation course is to ensure our candidates understand the requirements, and are prepared for the OSCE exam through our training materials, resources, and practical assessments. We provide candidates the experience of a scenario run throughs througout the course to simulate the exam.

Our training programme will teach all OSCE requirements to ensure the candidate is confident in their skill and knowledge to pass the OSCE exam, and continue to use these skills into their career.

The NMC introduced an updated version of the NMC Test of Competence for Overseas and Return to Practice Nurses which is now in place - and further additional clinical skills were added in October 2022.

As a result, Cotton Nursing Solutions has updated their course and it now runs over SIX days to ensure you have adequate time to cover all the amended and new aspects.

To keep costs lower for our candidates in these challenging cost of living times - 4 days take place VIRTUALLY to reduce travel or accomodation costs and 2 days are consecutive FACE TO FACE days to ensure you have the hands on practice and experience

Our OSCE preparation course is structured over 3 main domains covering 7 topics throughout the 5 day course:
