Due to COVID 19 a number of minor amendments have been made to the Test of Competence OSCEs:
(a) In-hospital resuscitation will not be tested unless a candidate needs to resit this particular skill. In these circumstances the candidate will be advised of the health and safety precautions the centre has in place.
(b) The assessment station (all scenarios) will not have an actor and therefore the patient’s temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiration and oxygen saturation will not be measured. Please verbalise and explain how you would complete each vital sign. After you have explained each vital sign, the examiner will confirm verbally the individual measurement and hand you a flash Nursesarena.com card containing the data which must be documented correctly on the appropriate observation chart. You must document all observations accurately before the end of the station.
You will therefore be assessed on your ability to document observations accurately. The station time has been reduced to 10 minutes
