Training in Kerala

Across 12 days, this all inclusive course will cover the NMC OSCE exam for Adult (General) Nursing. The NMC OSCE course will also include books and digital learning materials. As well as a full mock exam delivered under timed conditions just like the real NMC OSCE exam. This course is part of the Indian Government's initiative to upskill nurses within the Kerala state.


What is the NMC OSCE?

In order to practise as a nurse in the United Kingdom, you must complete registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This requires satisfying three stages: the English Language Stage (via IELTS or OET) and the two part Test of Competence (NMC CBT and NMC OSCE). The cost to sit the exam is not included in the course fee.

The NMC's Objective Structured Clinical Examination or NMC OSCE is a practical test, which features 10 stations. Six of the stations are mandatory: Assessment; Planning; Implementation and Evaluation (or APIE) and Professional Values and Evidence Based Practice. The other 4 stations are skills stations from a possible 22 skills.

These are:

Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence

Unlike most VR programs, our trainees interact with the IELTS Medical virtual hospital through IELTS Medical's VR Medi Gloves®. An alternative to joysticks, nurses will be able to practise, as they would in the real world, through their trademarked gloves which provide haptic sensations using 12 haptic sense points. Each finger has two sense points and the palm includes two sense points to deliver haptic feedback. Plus the gloves track movements in the virtual world to deliver very accurate results for up to 4 hours continuously.


You will have access to IELTS Medical's VR-AI Medsets® a fully boxed training kit, which includes a VR headset with AI marking capability, haptic gloves and immersive simulations. This will allow you to apply and practise your skills using your whole body, which is more effective and less restrictive than a joystick or gamepad. These kits were built to be habit forming products, which allows you to make training a regular part of your everyday routine.
