"When CNO asked me to take the OSCE/IENCAP I immediately looked for resources for me to be equipped with the right knowledge and skills that I need in challenging the exam. I have heard about HCPT through a Facebook group that I follow. I did a little research about the centre and the reviews looked great as it shows a good number of students passing the exam. So I was convinced and I enrolled for the 8-day course taught by Analyn who is, no doubt, very much knowledgeable about the exam. She taught us how to attack the exam confidently because of the comprehensive Physical Assessment course and in-depth reviews of different types of scenarios. They also provide a mock type exam like the actual exam and Archna was very helpful in providing constructive and intelligent feedback. I was able to carry all these valuable learning with me on the exam day and I am just grateful that I decided to invest a little amount of time in attending the review because it is all worth it. I am very happy that I passed OSCE with the help of HCPT." -Liza, Aug 2017 OSCE

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