The OSCE review is the objective structured clinical examination test. It is a performance-based test in which nurses are observed and evaluated under certain regulations. At the Modern Tech Review center, this test preparation has been designed by our review program director Priya Basil to prepare the nurses to get certified in this course.
The OSCE tells the nurses what they need to learn for their practice. Modern tech prepares more than 60 students nationwide for taking this test and passing it in one go. We help our students from our course preparation program to achieve success. It takes approximately 1 or 2 months to complete the preparation of this course with eight lectures and station practices. Our director pays individual concentration on all the students at modern tech nursing review center.
What is the OSCE review test?
The test is performance-based in which graduated nurses are observed as they have to perform a series of stations in which they find patients expressing various problems. The hallway of OSCE exams contains several rooms in which there are different patients with challenging problems. The healthcare professionals and physicians observe the students how they handle the situation, what aids they are providing the patients with. This test holds a remarkable similarity to the real-life challenges that a nurse go through.
How is the OSCE test done?
The OSCE examination holds great importance in the nurse’s career. It enables the nurses to face the real-life situation, and at modern tech nursing review center, we prepare them for passing this hurdle by providing precisely the same environment as they would see on the test day. The following instructions are presented to the students for the test day.
The first step that the nurses have to follow to enter the test is registration. The candidate needs to show their identification card. They can only contain the things that they need during the trial. Other tha that, the examiner will keep everything.
After the registration, the students would be shown an orientation video to introduce them to their team leader and starting stations and further procedures.
Escorting to the stations:
The students will be escorted to the stations. They will have to enter their particular station on the sound of a buzzer or bell and start their exam. Their time and their care would be observed keenly in the test.
In the OCSE test, the students perform their required tasks in a specific time. Students only can ask professional questions to the patient, and they have to fill the paper that is assigned to them related to the patient’s condition. At the next buzzer, they need to change their station and observe the second patient. In this way, they need to perform the whole test.
Main Features of the test:
- Stations are short,
- Stations are numerous
- Stations are highly focused, and candidates are given particular instructions
- A pre-set organized mark arrangement is used that reduced examiner input
- What candidates can perform rather than their knowledge
- The application of knowledge rather than the recollection of knowledge
- 5 minutes most common (3-20 minutes)
- (minimum) 18-20 stations/2 hours for adequate reliability
- Written answer sheets or observer assessed using checklists
- The mix of station types/competencies tested
- Examination hall is a hospital ward
- Atmosphere active and busy
- Double or triple stations
- Linked stations
- Preliminary stations
- “Must pass” stations
- Rest stations
At modern tech nursing review center, our review program director pays concentration to the nurses to pass this test with full remarks because it contains mostly clinical examinations that are the key to this profession. The modes of learning and training of this test at our review center are:
- 8 days of classroom lectures
