The new resource consists of several training videos aimed at familiarising overseas nurses to UK clinical environments, and to offer some insights and orientation to simulation based clinical scenarios. The resource is intended to be a support at the point of registration and is not a guide to passing the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) exam as part of the Nursing and Midwifery Council part 2 test of competence. It does however offer tips and signpost to references that may be beneficial in preparing for the OSCE exam.
The films were developed at the request of NHS nurse educators who are tasked with supporting and integrating newly appointed international nurse recruits. The content is based on the Royal Marsden Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures (9th Edition) and the European Resuscitation Council Guidelines (2015).
To help support the integration of overseas nurses into UK practice, employers are encouraged to share the resource with new recruits. They can download the training videos and use them flexibly as a revision aid.
