Filipino Nurses celebrate exam success
The first cohort of Filipino nurses who arrived at the Trust this year have successfully completed their Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) and are now registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as registered nurses. Prior to arrival in the UK they completed a number of objectives in the Philippines before they were eligible to work at the Trust. Since their arrival, the nurses (pictured) have been supported to undertake a number of OSCE assessments at Northampton University. The OSCE assessments are based around a number of fundamental nursing skills and include; patient assessment and care planning, Aseptic Non Touch Technique (ANTT), and safe administration of medicines and Basic Life Support (BLS). The Trust’s recruitment and education teams have worked collaboratively with the nurses and are delighted with what the nurses have achieved so far. They have worked very hard to prepare themselves for the OSCE assessment and the Trust congratulates them on their success. They are working within the medical and surgical acute areas within the hospital and have been warmly welcomed within the Trust.
