The CBT is a computer based multiple choice exam, which tests your theoretical practice-based knowledge.

It's made up of 120 questions.

The test can be taken in test centres around the world with our test provider, Pearson VUE.

Why do I need to take the test?

The CBT is designed to assess whether you can competently apply your professional nursing or midwifery skills and knowledge in the United Kingdom (UK).

This is so we can be sure that you’re able to deliver the high standards of care expected from the nurses and midwives on our register.
