We are based offsite, (still in Yeovil) to larger premises with free parking and a nearby bus station. The course syllabus equips candidates with the practical and theoretical knowledge to pass the OSCE exam. Yeovil Hospital’s OSCE training is delivered on a ward set up specifically for this course, and to date candidates have had a 100% success rate whom have taken the training.

Led by experienced practitioners the programme covers all core elements set out in part 2 of the NMC test of competence. Please click on the relevant course below to find out more.

To ensure we continue with a high standard of training, we request within the booking contract that candidates inform us of their OSCE results and feedback received from the formal exam.

On enrolment, all candidates will be given access to our Moodle Platform and it is important that you make use of the resources available on there. There are videos and resources for practicing.

We post alerts on Moodle which will then automatically generate an email to inform you of any changes/important information.

You can send in any queries, questions and work for review to the OSCE email address (OSCETraining@YDH.NHS.UK) which is monitored daily (Monday-Friday). You can also follow our Facebook page and Twitter (@YdhOsce).

All resources are available on our Moodle platform and you will have access to this until you pass your formal OSCE exam. Please remember that the Moodle pages are specific to each different type of training, including the pathway you are on. It is important that you do not share resources or practice with other nurses on different training/pathway as the process are very different for each.

You will be given a goody bag with essentials so you can practice after training.

Training starts at 09:00 and finishes at 16:30 each day, except Thursday which is mock exam day and when the end time will depend on the size of the group taking the mock exam; therefore we advise that any travel is booked to be flexible.

We ask that candidates attend in normal clothes, however on the Thursday (the day candidates will have their mock exam) please bring uniform/scrubs (if they have these). We ask that candidates change into uniform/scrubs at the venue upon arrival. There is a changing room available.

We have a specific skills trainer to support you during the training day. You can also practice on the mock exam day when you are not sitting your exam. We advise that you also practice after the training and you can even video yourself and email us for feedback.
