Assessment of clinical competence in nurse practitioner programmes has been greatly advanced over the last 10 years by widespread use of the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). This article describes a modified OSCE developed in a nurse education department at a specific university within the UK to standardize evaluation of the physical examination skills of nurse practitioner students. Stations comprise procedure stations, which require students to perform a ‘whole’ examination of the subject, and question stations, which are composed of two forms of viva, involving various cognitive activities. A number of other universities are currently using this modified OSCE as a tool for formative and summative assessment, as a learning resource, and to identify gaps and weaknesses in clinical skills.
