Supporting you in achieving CBT success


The competence-based test, known as the CBT is an online multiple-choice exam set by the NMC to test your ability and knowledge to practice nursing safely in here the UK.

The CBT forms part one of the NMC Test of Competence, the second is the OSCE. You can sit your CBT or OSCE in any order, but you must successfully complete both parts to continue with your application for initial NMC registration or readmission.

The midwife CBT is notoriously hard to pass due to the international differences in midwifery education and practice in the UK. Our programme supports the transition.

International midwifery

Midwifery education and the role and expectations of newly-qualified midwives vary hugely across the world, more so than for nursing. Midwives who trained in countries where the midwifery education and practice are very different to ours can lead to difficulties for individuals who are taking the test of competence.

Midwives are recruited whose education and experience are very different to the requirements in the UK, it will be much more challenging for them to achieve the standard expected for Midwifery registration in the UK. For this reason, we created the CBT midwifery programme with NHS England to enable more midwives to achieve CBT and gain a career in the NHS successfully.
