The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the professional regulator for nurses, midwives in the United Kingdom (UK) and nursing associates in England, develops and administers a two-part test of competence for nurses, midwives and nursing associates that seek to work in the UK.
The test of competence is split into 2 parts: part one is a computer-based test that consists of multiple-choice questions and can be taken at a Pearson VUE test centre available in most countries around the world (with a centre in Nairobi Kenya). Part 2 is a nursing or midwifery objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) – a practical nursing or midwifery examination. The OSCE can only be sat after successfully passing the CBT and is only available in the UK at a designated test centre.
At Realedge International, we train and prepare you for the CBT as well as guide you through the online NMC registration process.
