Free NMC OSCE Materials

Nurses and midwives training at IELTS Medical gain access to a wide range of NMC OSCE materials as part of your preparation packages. Sometimes we speak with nurses who have tried to prepare themselves for the NMC OSCE by watching videos they find on the internet, but learned the hard way that some of the advice they’ve received is wrong. The internet is a great place for learning if you know where to look. Here, we’ve put together some of the FREE NMC OSCE learning materials that we recommend. These videos are valid and helpful for the current Test of Competence (Test of Competence 2021).
