NCAP – OBA (Nursing Career Advancement Program – Outcomes Based Assessment)

OSCE for RNs


For IQNMs who meet the AHPRA registration criteria, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) transitioned to an Outcomes-Based Assessment (OBA) in March 2020. The bridging programme has been replaced by Outcomes-Based Assessment in this new system (OBA).

The Institute of Health & Management (IHM) has created the Nursing Career Advancement Program for National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses to help nurses in preparation for the Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) test as part of Outcomes-Based Assessment (OBA) in Australia (NCLEX-RN). NCAP for NCLEX – RN is a course that develops a candidate’s professional knowledge and prepares them for the Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) exam that is part of Australia’s Outcomes-Based Assessment (OBA).

* This course does not lead to direct registration as a Nurse or Midwife in Australia. NCAP for NCLEX – RN is a preparatory course which enhances the candidate’s professional knowledge and helps them to prepare for the Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) exam as a part of the Outcomes Based Assessment (OBA) in Australia.
