We launched the Test of Competence for nursing associates on 31 January 2022. 

The test is specific to nursing associates and measures candidates against our Standards of proficiency for nursing associates (2018).

It consists of two parts:

  • A multiple-choice computer based test known as the CBT.
  • A practical test known as the OSCE.

You can sit your CBT or OSCE in any order, but you must successfully complete both parts to continue with your application for initial registration or readmission.
