Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) for the Internationally Educated Nurses Competency Assessment Program (IENCAP)

 An important part of the application process for all internationally educated nurses is determining nursing program equivalency, for registration as a Registered Nurse.  For RN applicants, this means the College of Nurses of Ontario evaluates the educational background to determine if you have successfully completed a program of study that has prepared you with the nursing knowledge, skill and judgment equal to that of a recent graduate of a Canadian university baccalaureate nursing program.


 If the College has determined that your program does not meet the program requirement, then you will be asked to complete an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) before the College can proceed with your application. 


This program will help the nurses to prepare and build confidence for participating in OSCE. This eight day prep-course will assist nurses to identify strategies to enhance performance in standardized assessment process through hands-on experience. The participants will gain an understanding of how to effectively demonstrate and communicate their ability to conduct clinical assessment in a safe learning environment. The program will further allow the participants to take a history, conduct physiological measurement, manage challenging communication, make a diagnosis and develop a plan of care for treating patients' while maintaining an appropriate attitude to a patient or situation.
