If you’re a Pre-Registration Nurse in the UK


  • March 23, 2020

If you’re a pre-registration nurse in the UK, the deadline for you to sit the Occupational Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) has been extended to 31 December 2020. If you do not pass on the first attempt, you will have until 31 May 2021 to pass the exam.

However, we are expecting NMC to reconsider these deadlines based on Pre-Covid -19 applicants clearing their OSCE, which means due to the unseen delays of COVID-19 if the existing pool of NMC applicants are unable to book the OSCE before Dec2020 these datesmost likely expected to be revised by NMC.
