Prepare for the OSCE With Our Program

An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is an assessment that allows applicants to demonstrate their nursing knowledge, skill, and judgment in a simulated clinical setting.

During the OSCE, applicants rotate between stations, interacting with “patients” who present with different symptoms or injuries. At the start of each station, you will receive a written statement about the situation and the task you must complete. At the end of the timed session, an examiner will ask you some questions about the case, while another assessor takes notes in a separate room.

An OSCE allows applicants with real-life nursing practice experience and/or education to demonstrate their knowledge, skill, and judgment in a setting that is as close as possible to real-life clinical experiences they would face as a nurse in Canada. It provides a clearer picture of an applicant’s nursing education and experience than a paper-based assessment.


The OSCE is based on Competencies for Entry-Level Registered Nurse practice, which includes all the competencies that a practising Canadian nurse is expected to possess.

The OSCE may include clinical content from the following areas:

  • Ambulatory Care
  • Community/Public Health
  • Complex Continuing Care
  • Emergency Care
  • Geriatrics
  • Intensive/Critical Care Medical
  • Mental Health Obstetrics
  • Paediatric and Adolescent Health
  • Palliative Care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Surgical
